We helped write the book on laneway housing in Toronto, and there is no better option for turn-key laneway solutions whether your focus is on accessibility, beauty, sustainability, or all of the above.
Laneway suites are secondary dwellings constructed behind traditional street-facing homes on lots abutting a public laneway. Laneway suites increase quality of affordable rental housing, intensify existing neighbourhoods, utilize existing infrastructure and animate underutilized urban space.
Lanescape’s approach to design and construction is founded on critical analysis, technical comprehension and a relentless enthusiasm for creating exemplary urban environments. As we continue to reshape Toronto’s urban fabric, resourcefulness and contextual sensitivity is engrained in both our process and our product.
As designers and builders, Lanescape’s role transcends the traditional relationship between architect and general contractor. We act on your behalf to effectively manage all aspects and parties involved in bringing your new laneway suite to reality. Our team effectively straddles the divide between concept and realization from the day pencil hits paper to the night of your house-warming party.
Lanescape operates at the intersection of advocacy and implementation. Our expertise in the by-laws’ development and on-site experience informs our workshops, lectures, and information sessions. Whether you are a homeowner, realtor, design professional, or laneway housing enthusiast, our events offer information valuable to all laneway housing perspectives.
