The CUBE Building is a unique 10 storey residential development that pushes the boundaries of timber and hybrid buildings through its innovative twisted design, complex geometry and concrete, steel and timber construction. Architect's Hawkins\Brown took a basic cruciform shape which provided four courtyard communities for residents and then twisted every second floor to ensure all the flats had dual or triple aspect views and generous terraces. The complex geometry of the building required it to be constructed as a hybrid cross-laminated timber (CLT) and steel structure. By coupling BIM with an integrated supply chain for the superstructure, careful consideration of the relative movements and developing engineering solutions to connect the different materials, the CUBE Building project was able to use timber as the predominant construction material for an innovative, sustainable and exceptional residential development on a tight urban site.
