Snowmass Base Village Buildings 10A & 10B
LocationSnowmass Village, Colorado
ultra-high-performance luxury living
Situated at the base of Snowmass Mountain at 8,500’, Buildings 10A & 10B will complete the master plan for the Base Village and offer true ski-in, ski-out living. The project contains 91 condominium units, spread across two buildings, that range from one-bedroom homes to two-level townhouses to penthouse-level 6 bedroom “sky cabins” providing the experience of a single family home with the convenience and low-maintenance of a professionally managed condominium.
With an owner committed to sustainability, and a severe climate at high elevation, Buildings 10A & 10B are designed to be ultra-high-performance inside and out, with a target of net zero and LEED Gold. The buildings will feature a super-insulated and air-tight envelope which eliminates thermal bridging to the greatest extent possible. Triple-pane, thermally broken, solar-optimized windows will guarantee occupant comfort and reduce heating loads. Solar thermal evacuated tubes on the roof are paired with 400’-deep geo-exchange wells to power a water-source heat pump that is used to heat the spa pool and snow melt the roof decks. Fresh ventilation air is brought into the building through 300’-long earthtubes which are used to preheat the incoming air in winter and precool the air in summer. The ventilation air is distributed in the units via passive house certified HRVs that recapture over 90% of the energy of the exhaust air and provide HEPA-level filtration.
