Design & Build with Lanescape
Lanescape is a full-service design-build practice. Our holistic approach to design, approvals, and construction maintains an efficient process while ensuring your laneway suite is personal and unique. Our team is the leading authority on laneway development in Toronto, and we work closely with you and your family to deliver your laneway suite seamlessly and transparently.
PRELIMINARY DESIGN & ASSESSMENT
Our preliminary design and assessment illustrates the possibilities for your laneway suite, and demonstrates preliminary options for site planning alongside massing diagrams and resolved interior floor plans. The package also includes a complete project pro-forma, summarizing all foreseeable expenses, prospective income, and stabilized property value. It will contain everything you need to understand the viability of a laneway site on your property, and clearly outline the process to achieve it.
DESIGN & APPROVALS
Our design process is standardized for efficiency, with options that allow you to customize the layout, aesthetic, style, finishes, energy efficiency, and features of your personalized laneway suite while still conforming to the as-of-right by-laws. Once you have made your selections and approved the design and budget, our team manages and coordinates municipal approvals. We streamline the process while keeping you engaged and in control.
Our designs have been crafted to maximize material and spatial efficiency while simplifying construction. Building on laneways is a unique challenge. Access is limited, there are overhead obstacles, and staging space is often non-existent. Our experience building on laneways accounts for these realities, and our construction process minimizes disruption of both your primary residence and adjacent neighbours. We strategize, organize and supervise construction while you watch your laneway suite come to life.
