King Edward Villa

King Edward Villa is a six-storey, mixed-use building located at the corner of King Edward Avenue and Kingsway. The building is comprised of 77 apartments arranged over five floors of wood-frame construction, on top of street level commercial space and a basement parking garage, which are constructed in concrete.

Wood Use

Above the concrete roof of the ground floor commercial units, the entire structure is wood, including exterior and interior walls, interior floors and exterior balconies, elevator shafts and roof trusses. Of these elements, the most innovative are the parallel chord floor trusses that enable the main mechanical and electrical services to be run easily within the depth of the floor.
