This 1,000 square foot, 2-storey suite offers a 1-bedroom, 1.5 bathroom home close to parks, transit, and community amenities. This project may sit on a narrow lot but contains a well-appointed kitchen, powder room, and light-filled study at the ground floor. Upstairs, the suite features a three-piece bath, a spacious bedroom, and a well-sized living room oriented towards the laneway. Black corrugated metal wraps the exterior while horizontal planks add texture to the ground floor.
The Symington Laneway Suite demonstrates how skillful planning can add lasting value to a property and provide long-term housing flexibility. This unit offers an exciting glimpse into how the laneway suite typology can breathe new life into underutilized areas of our city by adding density to residential neighbourhoods.
