Laneway Homes Toronto

In an attempt to move beyond a status quo of condos and town homes, we have envisioned a solution for professional zero emission (or near) micro housing. The homes are designed to be extremely efficient, both in layout and energy consumption.

As part of this initiative, earth, in partnership with Evergreen and Thomas Payne Architects, conceived the delivery of three prototype laneway homes in the Huron Sussex neighbourhood for the University of Toronto.

The homes are an option to the condo tower unit of shrinking unit size, and offers an intensive ground-oriented alternative that is worth exploring on key underutilized and hard-to-develop sites.
