The Loblolly house was designed by Kieran Timberlake Architects, engineered and constructed by Bensonwood. This project was one of the most talked-about homes of 2006. It was featured in Wired Magazine, on Treehugger.com, and won several awards. Unusual for Bensonwood at the time, the frame is extruded aluminum, with custom fabricated steel connectors. Open-built® systems, including pre-plumbing bath pods and pre-wiring some panels, facilitated installation on pylons at the beach-front site.
