This 1,570 square foot, 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath home occupies a uniquely configured property extending parallel to the laneway. The building is located to optimize the as-of-right envelope, while maintaining a considerable setback from the lane and providing an isolated, dedicated rear yard. The building volume is sculpted to preserve existing trees in the vicinity, allowing for the foliage to obstruct views and promote privacy to the numerous neighbouring lots. The ground level features an open-concept kitchen, dining, and living space with full-height windows opening to the South-facing yard. The upper level hosts a principal bedroom complete with ensuite, two secondary bedrooms and a spacious common bath, all of which are accessed from a central stair drenched in daylight.
The East Lynn Laneway Suite is a unique response to a unique condition. Tactfully applying the as-of-right zoning parameters to this a-typical property, our team crafted a response that realizes the property’s greatest potential, equally valuing indoor and outdoor space. This suite exemplifies the intent of the laneway housing policy in our city as a family-oriented space that is well-connected, well-appointed and well enjoyed by it’s tenants and neighbours.
“We love the laneway suite that you designed for us. Your system of presentation and review offered a clear path to achieving our best possible outcome. We appreciated your upfront fee schedule and knowing when we would be ready to book and start construction. It was a pleasure working with Lanescape.”
