For SouthFace Village, 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. Sugar Maple and Tamarack, Bensonwood's first two 14-unit multi-family slopeside townhouses at SouthFace Village at Okemo Mountain Resort in Ludlow, Vermont, are the result of Bensonwood's long relationship with the developer, Timber Creek. The green, sustainable development will include several multi-unit townhouses, a lodge, and other residential buildings all designed, fabricated, and raised on-site by Bensonwood. These are challenging locations to build, often with limited access. Unforgiving mountain climates influence our selection of durable materials, expressive, bold forms, and top-notch engineering. Our goal has been to create mountain architecture that is expressive, timeless, and suited to handle the tough, varied terrain of mountain climates.
