The TallWood House at Brock Commons is an 18-storey, 400-bed student residence at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. Reaching 53m, the building is among the tallest mass-timber hybrids in the world. The building features an innovative ‘post and panel’ system, with cross-laminated timber panels, point-supported on glulam columns. The project highlights mass timber’s increasing viability as a cost-effective building material for high-rise construction.
