These new images offer a glimpse inside Japanese architect Shigeru Ban’s Terrace House for Vancouver, set to become the tallest hybrid timber structure in the world once complete.
Ban’s residential tower is expected to reach 71 metres at its tip – a feat that its developers Port Living say will make it the “world’s tallest hybrid timber structure”. The building will comprise an outer frame of timber and glass top, paired with a concrete and steel core.
Newly released visuals and details also reveal that the building on Vancouver’s waterfront will provide 20 luxury residences, featuring a simple and neutral palette, and custom door handles, cabinet pulls and millwork all designed by Ban.
Nearly half of the apartments will occupy an entire floor. On the lower part of the building these will be wrapped by the terraces that Ban added to line up with the listed landmark next door – the Evergreen Building by Canadian architect Arthur Erickson.
Three homes will be spread across the top seven floors as the timber structure tapers upwards.
