Laneway Living: Stylish Mini Homes

Architecture, News

 

Since Vancouver’s EcoDensity Laneway House initiative was launched in 2009, laneway houses have been gaining more and more popularity.  There are a ton of proposed benefits to these mini-homes (financially, environmentally, economically) but how often are they credited for their beauty and design?

A certain laneway house production company caught my attention:  Lanefab Design. From what I’ve seen on their website they build pretty amazing mini-homes.  They also innovate.  They are the creators of a sustainable, solar powered, rain-water harnessing home called the Net Zero House.  And it doesn’t look like a giant greenhouse: this little home is stunning.  Check out their website by clicking the link above.
