A 71m-tall timber and concrete building designed by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban for Vancouver will contain 20 apartments valued at more than $2.4m each.

Terrace House, which developer Port Living says is the world's tallest hybrid timber structure will occupy a site on the city’s waterfront.

PortLiving said that the interiors were a “true representation of Shigeru Ban’s work: clean lines, pure, and blanketed with natural light resulting in the feeling of exposed spaces.

“Custom fixtures and features throughout the building, including door handles, cabinet pulls, and millwork have all been designed by Shigeru Ban, reflecting the developers’ commitment to the ultimate residences exuding exclusivity and livability.”

Macario Reyes, founder of PortLiving, said: “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.  

“To further enhance the ownership experience, residents will enjoy a dedicated concierge team, and a plethora of amenities ensuring a best in class lifestyle.”
