Cadence Lodge is a multifamily development designed for the mountain community of Fernie, British Columbia. The design brings principles of smart development to the growing community, which is a popular ski and mountain tourism destination. With five buildings of up to four storeys, the development is designed to intensify the site with increased residential density and consolidation of lots.
The design provides a practical approach to answering market demand for housing without encroaching unnecessarily on the surrounding environment.
The site plan includes underground parking, resident amenities including a lounge, two exercise rooms, and an indoor swimming pool.
The plan also includes a total of 33 one-bedroom units and 116 two-bedroom units, as well as attainable housing in the form of four infill-style townhomes.
The architectural style draws on the tradition of mountain and craftsman architecture, making use of exposed timber and stone accents.
