The November issue of Canadian Architect contains a feature article about 80 Atlantic in Toronto. It is the mass timber building designed by Quadrangle Architects. In the article it states that “wood will be the future for Canadian architecture and construction”.
The use of mass timber can offset more greenhouse gases and sequester carbon. Building codes are now being changed to help encourage the use of mass timber in Canada. This 8,000 sq. meter building includes four storeys of office space, ground floor retail and an underground concrete parking garage.
The rear ventilated rainscreen that is protecting the integrity of the wood frame structure is Ceramitex – sintered ceramic facade system.
