Designed by Levitt Goodman Architecture, the Laneway House truly is a one-of-a-kind contemporary custom build, with touches of Scandinavian influence, tucked away in the heart of downtown Toronto.
Dating back to the early 1800’s, the Coach House is a Legal Non-Conforming laneway structure. While the physical footprint remained identical, virtually every square inch of this New Build was customized.
Beginning with new foundation walls and underpinning the existing basement, the Coach House is an incredibly efficient New Build that boasts radiant heated polished cement floors and Flat Cut Douglas Fir millwork throughout. Additional features include solar powered skylights with integrated blinds, standing seam metal roofing and cladding, steel staircase with glass guards, 12’ bi-fold front entrance door, integrated appliances, polished cement counters, split ductless cooling/heating system, drywall reveal channels, smart activated Adorne switches, sewage ejector and sump pump, including smart activated battery backup.
Bridging the past into the present, the 100+year wood Douglas Fir barnboard cladding was removed, stripped, prepped, ripped, planed, sanded, treated and reinstalled as the wood cladding on the front façade.
