Record Breaking Wooden House



Record Breaking Wooden House

The tallest residential timber structure in the world

Location: Colville Estate, Hackney, N1

Description: Cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels are the magic ingredient for this superb building.

An eight-storey residential project in Hackney is the location - 'Bridport House' is billed as the first time CLT has been used in the UK for the entire structure, including ground floor, of a high-rise building.

Previous CLT high-rise applications like the nine-storey Stadthaus project, also in Hackney, have featured a concrete ground floor.

The 41-apartment building, commissioned by the London Borough of Hackney, is the 'tallest residential timber structure in the world'.
