A Vail Chalet Built the Modular Way

Balz and Christina Arrigoni, owners of Vail-based luxury flooring company Arrigoni Woods, wanted a true family home where they could all spend time together. Architect Doug DeChant (of Douglas Miller DeChant Architects/Shepherd Resources) helped them build a spacious and innovative three-story home with an unusual European pedigree that fulfilled their wishes.

The majoritiy of the home was pre-built in Switzerland through the Arrigonis’ recently launched company, Concept 4012. After traveling by boat to Houston and via train to Denver, three enormous shipping containers arrived by truck in Vail. Much like an Amish barn raising, a professional team of builders erected the 3,800-square-foot home in just seven days. “You cut out four or five months of construction time” compared to traditional “stick-built” homes, Balz says of the system.

Because so many of the elements were prefabricated, the Swiss chalet-style house with a bright, contemporary interior was move-in ready just four months after the containers arrived.
