Shigeru Ban’s Terrace House for Vancouver is a residential tower, 71 meters high and it’s set to become the tallest hybrid timber structure in the world once completed. The building will comprise an outer frame of timber and glass top, paired with a concrete and steel core.
Newly released visuals 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. Three homes will be spread across the top seven floors as the timber structure tapers upwards. On the lower levels, large sliding glass doors will provide openings from the the living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms to the outside, with views across the city and mountains. The outdoor spaces will feature lighting fitted into the rim of balconies, while planting will be draped on top.
“Terrace House is the pinnacle of modern development and will stand out among some of the greatest residential buildings in the world,” said Port Living founder and CEO, Macario Reyes. “Shigeru Ban and his team’s attention to detail is unparalleled and have ensured that each of these homes is truly unique to any other in Vancouver.”
With prices starting at $3 million (£2.2 million), the luxury residences will also be detailed with smart technology, glazing chosen to protect art collections from sunlight damage, and in-floor heating and cooling systems.
