Luxury Mountain Resort redefines meetings in the Northeast
Stowe Mountain Lodge positions itself as the leading meetings destination in New England with the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center
Stowe Mountain Resort is the largest meetings venue in Vermont with a variety of flexible function space throughout Stowe Mountain Lodge and Spruce Peak Alpine Village. Stowe Mountain Lodge's 12,000 square-feet of dedicated indoor meeting space boasts floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking breathtaking mountain vistas, designed to foster productivity and creative thinking. Spruce Peak, adjacent to Stowe Mountain Lodge, boasts over 30,000 square-feet of function space including the highly anticipated Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center. Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center is a state-of-the-art 420-seat performing arts theater that was meticulously crafted to support lectures, presentations, multi-media displays and a wide range of other events year-round.
The Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center is part of the growth and opportunities taking place in Stowe and at the development of Spruce Peak at Stowe. Seen as a major all-season resort community, guided by a master plan which includes hotels, a base lodge, mountain cabins, a limited number of private homes, a golf club with a clubhouse and more, the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center was created to be a top focal point and gathering place in the region.
The performing arts center is envisioned as a venue for a wide and diverse spectrum, including group meetings, theatre, all styles of music, dance, ﬁlm, lectures and a variety of other performances, as well as private events.
The 420-seat theatre was based on the simple volumes and large sheltering roofs that unify the entire Spruce Peak project. The performance space is a simple barn-like rectangle with a heavy timber, truss roof, low slope ﬂoor, and minimal separation between the audience and the stage. Planned with an adjustable proscenium, which can open as wide as the auditorium, the space provides ﬂexibility that includes the extension of seating onto the stage, the use of the box seating areas for VIPs and the opportunity for reception and banquet functions both on and off stage.
The building integrates a tension grid technical space over the stage for lighting and scenery, a lighting bridge and catwalk over the auditorium, and an equipment room for sound, projection and recording. Support space includes a public lobby oriented towards the hotel and base lodge as well as break rooms, a green room and a coat room..
In keeping with the architecture and materials of Spruce Peak, the performing arts center is clad in red cedar shingles, with a cedar frieze, columns and fascias, pine soffit and dark framed windows. The interior of the lobby and auditorium are ﬁnished in warm Douglas Fir panels, and the public space is ﬁnished in Vermont green slate. A custom chandelier, by local blacksmith and artist Richard Spreda, punctuates the tall, truss- roofed lobby. A public gallery area off the main lobby features ever changing exhibits of visual art work by Vermont artists as well as regional and international artists.
Sited at the foot of Mount Mansﬁeld, the performing arts center will integrate into the assembly of buildings at Spruce Peak, which form this unique development while concurrently functioning as an iconic structure housing a place of community celebration and entertainment
