Coexist Build on Dezeen Award Longlist in Sustainable Building

Ben Franklin client Coexist Build, LLC, Blandon is on the longlist for a prestigious Dezeen Award in Sustainable Building for its product, The Traveler. The Traveler is a do-it-yourself kit for a backyard office or cabin retreat designed and curated for optimal performance, comfort, and health.

Dezeen Awards is the world’s most popular architecture, interiors, and design awards program. With a record-breaking 5,400 entries this year, 290 longlisted projects were selected from 90 countries.

The Traveler is the first hemp-and wellness-based DIY kit on the market. Materials are carefully selected based on the performance efficiency, environmental and health impact, and life-cycle analysis.

The assembly of the heavy timber structure is reminiscent of a barn raising; an event for the family to cherish and remember.

The hemp and plaster walls bring an earthy feel that promotes wellness and health. Healthy, fun, and sustainable, The Traveler is the next level of modern construction.
