LANEWAY HIDEAWAY HOUSE
on Queen Street East

Residence and courtyard garden located on the laneway side of a high end Queen Street East retail store.

Building type:
Commercial residential building, laneside residential addition

City:
Toronto

The street side of this building remains a high end retail store. The laneway and garden side of the building now includes the newly added residence for the owners of the building. This new home is compact, yet spacious, as it features large windows onto the garden and double-height openings at the entranceway. The artistic inspiration for the owners of the building were Scandinavian domestic interiors, wherein a restrained palette emphasizes select natural materials such as the wood grain of the hardwood flooring.

When the home is complete, it will be a brightly lit garden-facing architectural escape from the city and will display the owners' collection of beautiful objects and furniture.
