This 1,300 square foot Christie Pits Laneway Suite is home to the homeowners’ son and partner who sought a space uniquely tailored to their needs in the heart of the community they grew up in. The ground level features a 2-car garage and a large gym space that seamlessly connects to the rear yard. The upper level hosts a well-appointed 2-bedroom living space that can accommodate the evolving needs of the occupants. The large proportions of the 23′-0″ wide building are negotiated by modularizing the facade with cladding of various formats and tones. The upper-level living space enjoys ample daylight from both the laneway and yard—offering a bright and spacious environment.
The Christie Pits Laneway Suite is a prime example of how laneway development can offer a unique alternative to condominiums or basement apartments while remaining within reach of transit and community amenities. This suite promises to be the perfect space to maintain an independent lifestyle while remaining close to family and friends.
“Lanescape has been a breath of fresh air as a turnkey solution to laneway house construction providing professional design and expertise throughout the entire process. From the moment of engagement, Lanescape had already inventoried the eligibility of our laneway for such a project and was ready with answers to our questions regarding the costs, process and permitting. They (alongside the contractor) worked as partners to resolve each matter leveraging their extensive network to ultimately build our home.”
