Create the Future is the charge behind this Utah-based boundary-breaking company, Pluralsight. In conjunction with owner/developer Gardner Development Corporation, the new campus broke ground on its hillside plateau that overlooks the Salt Lake Valley in October 2018. The master planned campus is designed to enjoy 360-degree views to the surrounding Wasatch and Oquirhh mountains as the site adds its future buildings.
The new headquarters exterior takes an understated palette of dark grey metal on dark tinted glass, while its internal face reveals a warm environment punctuated by modern wood porches and a landscaped, streetscape-style pedestrian plaz . The design responds to reinforce the culture via interconnected stairwells, expansive meeting areas, and hubs that will foster a feeling of connectivity and collaboration. Amenities of phase one will feature a full-service cafe, medical clinic, fitness center, and bike room. The footprint bends to glide along the edge of the site as the exterior roofline slopes from 5 to 4 stories, complimenting the hillside that rises beyond. This bend embraces the pedestrian plaza at the heart of the campus. Designed to be a relaxed and diverse space where food trucks, landscape, fire pits, picnic area, athletic courts, and a walking path with access to the trail system along its ridge.
Future master planned buildings are envisioned to promote a neighborhood feel and a reflection of Pluralsight’s values and culture. Each new building will further engage and activate the pedestrian zone, with cars stowed in structured parking decks that will sit against the steep rising slope along the back of the campus. This project creates a relaxed and energized touch point for this global tech company on Utah’s Silicon Slopes.
