This Wooden High-Rise Tower Is A Giant Treehouse For City-Dwellers

Can you imagine living in one of these apartments? It'd feel like having your own tree house in the city.

The Toronto Tree Tower is sustainable high-rise concept made of cross-laminated timber that features an incredible collection of hanging gardens. Created as a collaboration between Penda architects and Tmber, Toronto Tree Tower presents an alternative to the glass and steel landscape of cities.

The proposed design is made of sever rises 18 stories and the tower mixes residential and public space.

If you walk through the city and suddenly see a tower made of wood and plants, it will create an interesting contrast.

"Our cities are a assembly of steel, concrete and glass," writes Chris Precht, the Head of Penda. "If you walk through the city and suddenly see a tower made of wood and plants, it will create an interesting contrast."

"The warm, natural appearance of wood and the plants growing on its facade bring the building to life and that could be a model for environmental friendly developments and sustainable extensions of our urban landscape."

Each apartment unit is a modular design that would be assembled offsite before being transported and stacked on the foundation. The modular design allows for faster, quieter, and more eco-friendly construction.
