Toronto Laneway Housing Project
We are Canada's leading architecture and construction practice dedicated exclusively to laneway and garden suites, with 100+ building permits received and 200+ active or completed projects.
Laneway suites are secondary dwellings constructed behind traditional street-facing homes on lots abutting a public laneway. They increase housing flexibility, animate underutilized space, and provide housing options close to community amenities. Laneway suites provide housing for loved ones, generate income, and create live-work opportunities.Laneway Suite By-Laws
Garden suites are detached secondary dwellings located to the rear yard of a principal residence. They are intended to be a modest-scale separate housing unit that integrates sensitively within existing neighbourhoods. Garden suites effectively extend the permissions for laneway suites to residential properties that do not benefit from frontage on a public laneway and fulfill provincial housing policy that requires improved housing flexibility for homeowners and families.GARDEN SUITES
