  • In a Toronto laneway near the Art Gallery of Ontario, this single-family passive solar house was inserted onto a tiny site previously occupied by a two-car garage. Inside the home, large windows and spacious rooms over three floors create an expansive feeling, overcoming the restrictions of the modest site. The Laneway Loft illustrates how underused or abandoned properties in the urban core can be used instead of continually extending the city's boundaries.

    The home's unconventional floor plan is uniquely designed for the resident's personal preferences and routine, with a kitchen and dining area on the first floor, and a large office and bedroom on the second floor.
