New images offering a glimpse inside Japanese architect Shigeru Ban‘s Terrace House in Vancouver has surfaced. Poised to become the tallest timber-glass-concrete-steel hybrid structure ever, Ban has designed the custom door handles, cabinet pulls and millwork, as well as the terraces. Three homes will be developed across the top seven floors as the timber structure narrows upwards.

“Terrace House is the pinnacle of modern development and will stand out among some of the greatest residential buildings in the world,” said Port Living founder and CEO, Macario Reyes. “Shigeru Ban and his team’s attention to detail is unparalleled and have ensured that each of these homes is truly unique to any other in Vancouver.”

Glass doors on the lower levels open to the living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms to the rim-fitted lights outside, providing a landscape view of the scenery. Outdoor spaces adjoining the open-plan living, kitchen and dining rooms will have flooring that matches the white oak inside. Kitchens will be furnished with polished chrome, stainless-steel, white wall-storage cabinets, and a marble-topped island with a wood table and chairs for dining.

Bathrooms will be all-white,  bedrooms will feature millwork, walk-in wardrobes along with “spa-inspired en-suite bathrooms.” Winter gardens will be housed at the front of these habitations, in enclosed terraces under the slope of the roof.  Prices start at approximately $3 million USD, the luxury residences will also be detailed with smart technology, glazing chosen to protect art collections from sunlight damage, and in-floor heating and cooling systems.
