Toronto Laneway Housing Project
We wrote the book on laneway housing in Toronto. Our team is dedicated to designing and building innovative laneway and garden suites efficiently and affordably.
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
Our approach to design and construction is founded on critical analysis, technical comprehension and an enthusiasm for challenging the status quo. We work with you every step of the way, from the day the pencil hits the paper, to the night of your housewarming party.Learn about our process
