Vail Mountain School Faculty Housing

Vail Mountain School Faculty Housing

Vail, Colorado


It was the vision of the Vail Valley community that Vail Mountain School become one of the premier independent college preparatory schools in the country. As a result, Vail Mountain School hired gkkworks to master plan and redevelop its existing campus.

The master plan provides for a new 87,000-square-foot K-12 school building for it existing 325 students that remains consistent with the Vail Mountain School’s educational philosophies. Notable elements of the master plan include a new regulation soccer field (artificial turf), relocation of an historical homestead cabin, and the addition of eight two-bedroom faculty apartments.

The architecture of the school was designed to minimize the building mass against the hillside, as well as reflect a traditional mountain vernacular by incorporating board and batten siding and a stone base. The first phase of the school building was completed in the Summer of 2004; the final phase of the school was completed in December 2005.
