The world's tallest commercial timber building

post-image
The world's tallest timber office building is at Barangaroo in Sydney. The six above-ground levels of International House are constructed entirely from timber. The building includes a collonaded form at its base intended to evoke a forest. Internally the architects made the decision to fully expose the timber structure. It took years of rigorous testing to prove that a sustainable timber structure could be a safe, desirable and financially viable option for a commercial building. https://www.australiaunlimited.com/design/touch-wood-sustainable-building-design
