Benson Residence

Lansing, NY

A small home in Lansing, NY, that incorporates just about every green technology possible: site harvested timbers, straw bale walls, insulated concrete forms, structural insulated panels, living roof, solar hot water, geothermal, and reclaimed materials- to name a few. The team applied technical knowledge of current building codes, thermal and moisture protection, and structural framing to help bring form to the final design while creating design models, and ultimately produced a set of construction documents for the building permit. Construction of this project was probably a lot of fun.

This project was done while Noah was employed with Tallman & Demarest Architects, LLP, in collaboration with Brent and Diana from Balance Studio, LLC. For more photos and information visit the Balance Studio website.
