If you have not seen the inside of Carbon12 yet, now is your last chance. Please join us on February 14th at noon to get peek inside the (as of now) tallest CLT building in America. C(LT) you all soon!
With Carbon12, Kaiser Group and Path Architecture have set a new standard for what’s possible in sustainable development in the United States. At 85 feet tall, Carbon12 is the tallest mass timber and cross-laminated timber building in the country (as of Jan 2020). Kaiser Group and Path Architecture worked with city and state officials to waive restrictive codes limiting the height of wood buildings, making Carbon12 and future tall wood buildings in the US possible.
Carbon12 combines modern luxury and environmental responsibility, with sophisticated technology and sustainability features built in. Along with the inherent environmental benefits of wood, Carbon12 is better equipped to handle an earthquake or other natural disaster than any other residential building in the country, thanks to its buckling-restrained brace frame core. The building also features a solar-ready roof, an underground mechanical parking system, and ground-floor retail spaces to anchor it within the surrounding community.
About Path Architecture
We look for projects that give us the chance to develop, design, and build for the future. Projects that redefine how buildings can help meet the demands of a changing world, including rapid growth in urban populations and the challenges of a warming climate.
From the design decisions we make to the materials we use, we don’t settle for the way things have always been done. We know there’s a smarter way forward—a better way—and we’re here to prove it’s possible.
