We are pleased to share that Limberlost Place, designed by Moriyama & Teshima Architects and Acton Ostry Architects Inc., is a Gold Winner in this year’s Global Future Design (GFD) Award by Architecture Press Release (APR)!
Currently under construction at George Brown College’s waterfront campus in downtown Toronto, Limberlost Place will be the first tall wood institutional building in Ontario, and a global model for innovative and sustainable architecture. In achieving zero carbon energy, the building design has eliminated carbon emitting fuel sources entirely. This imperative is integrated in the thermally efficient building envelope, with optimized daylighting and natural ventilation systems, and through deep lake cooling and heating.
At this pivotal moment in time, with the current worldwide interest in tall timber, Limberlost Place is poised to set a precedent for the approval of exposed mass wood high-rise buildings and to accelerate the development of the Canadian forest products industry.
