Arup has been chosen to develop a 73m high residential tower in Amsterdam.

Called Haut, the tower will be the tallest timber building in the Netherlands and will provide 55 apartments over a 14,500m2  floor area.

It has been designed to achieve an outstanding label using the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method. 

The timber structure will store more than 3Mkg of carbon dioxide. Solar panels on the building’s roof will provide renewable energy to the building. A wetland area is also planned for the roof, and will purify waste water from the building.
