Private Residences | Vail Valley, Colorado

One of the most unique projects RA Nelson has undertaken, this residence is comprised of two adjoining units, with elevators accessing five and four levels, respectively. The exterior consists of steel paneling accents, sandblasted basalt, alucobond metal wall paneling and heated flat roofs with sand set concrete pavers. Landscape design includes unique bonsai, weeping Colorado spruces intermixed with native trees for ultimate privacy. The exterior water features are a combination of year round/summer rhythmic boxes that end at a natural pond with mountain run-off.
