[en] As a mean of accommodating increasing population in major cities around Europe, new agendas for urban densification emerge in response of finding sustainable solutions. Several methods for urban densification are proposed and seen in real life. Roof stacking has been proposed as a way to promote for sustainable urban densification. This paper presents the results of a conducted investigation on roof stacking assembly and construction methods using timber construction. A classification for different roof stacking has been proposed, followed by a comparative analysis between different methods. The comparative analysis identifies the advantages, disadvantages, and best practice of each method. A parametric simulation and multi-objective optimization have been carried out for two different methods to identify the optimum timber construction for roof stacking. The results shed the light on the solutions and recommended timber construction method according to the comparative analysis.
