This triangle shaped condo will soon be Canada's tallest hybrid timbre structure
The newest addition to the Vancouver skyline comes in an unusual shape and is made from unusual parts.
Made from a mixture of wood and glass, the condo looks to add a literal slice of innovative architecture to the high-rise area.
"Set to become the world's tallest hybrid timber structure, offering cutting edge design and material use, Terrace House will set a new precedent for architecture and innovation not only in Vancouver, but around the world," reads the PortLiving website.
The 19-story, 20-unit hybrid mass timber structure is designed with "the desire not to cast a shadow on the nearby park and [preserve] existing view corridors toward the waterfront and mountains."
It consists of a concrete structure for the podium, tower, core and timber structure for the building's triangular apex.
Timbre-designed structures are meant to encompass green and sustainable construction, while being overall more environmentally friendly.
