Overview

A two-storey structure comprising roughly 8,500 sq. ft. of space, the Shanghai "Dream Home" Wood Presentation Centre includes a large two-storey-high exhibit area, seminar room, library, and second floor offices. All structural components were manufactured — and in part prefabricated — in British Columbia. The intention of this project was to demonstrate both conventional BC-wood applications, as well as the versatility and ability of wood to be used in non-conventional applications.
