Limberlost Place

As the first tall wood building in Ontario, Limberlost Place (previously: The Arbour) at George Brown College in Toronto, Ontario, is a model for 21st Century smart, sustainable, green building innovation throughout Canada. A joint project between Moriyama & Teshima Architects and Acton Ostry Architects, this project will be landmark, tall wood, low-carbon building that will feature ecological innovation across its entire life cycle. 

The design of Limberlost Place instills generous spaces for wellbeing and sustainability, whose very name evokes green growth and shelter. The building form and façade will be shaped and refined to maximize access to natural light and fresh air. Two solar chimneys located on the east and west facades will be used to create a sustainable system of natural convection drawing air up and through the building from operable windows.
