London’s ‘Black and White’ Building Is Complete … and It’s a Knockout – The office building features exposed laminated veneer lumber. The latest mass timber building by Waugh Thistleton architects, the Black and White Building, is complete. The project, located in London’s Shoreditch neighborhood is as elegant and refined as the structure holding it up. It’s the first new building from The Office Group (TOG), a serviced office company.
While the building was under construction, we called it “absolutely LVLy” for its exposed laminated veneer lumber (LVL) structure. LVL is like the marble of mass timber.
