As its name suggests, Timber House’s primary feature is the mass timber construction, which consists of spruce cross-laminated timber (CLT) and Glulam. Sustainably logged and locally sourced in British Columbia, it sequesters 2,842 tonnes of carbon. CLT was used not only for the floor of the structure, but for the bearing and shear walls as well. These CLT panels have been left exposed in much of the building, with most units having one exposed ceiling and one exposed feature wall each. This distinct feature, combined with large windows and open areas, results in bright living spaces that feel connected to nature.
