SouthFace Village is a slopeside community currently being built on the south face of Okemo Mountain. For this development, Bensonwood’s high performance building technologies were needed to address the challenges of strict land management and high-density, low impact developments and nowhere is the problem more imperative than in Vermont, a state known for its pristine views, progressive environmental laws and stringent building codes. To date, Bensonwood has prefabricated, and raised on-site, four multi-unit townhomes, plus Unity Homes’ first Nano as the sales office. Two additional multifamily townhomes are planned, and then a series of five-bedroom chalets. These are difficult locations to build, often with limited access and challenging topography. Our goal has been to create mountain architecture that is expressive, timeless and suited to handle the tough, varied terrain of mountain climates.
