Contemporary Energy Efficient Laneway Home in Vancouver

Contemporary Energy Efficient Laneway Home in Vancouver

The Mendoza Lane House was designed by Lanefab after the authorities in Vancouver encouraged owners to replace their garages with laneway houses in order to increase people density in certain neighborhoods. According to the architects, “the Mendoza Lane House is 710sf with combined living/dining/kitchen upstairs along with a balcony. It’s built on a standard 33′x122′ lot and has the same footprint as the garage it replaced. The project was built with Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) a prefab system that allow us to create buildings that are 2x as energy efficient as typical new home in Vancouver.  The windows are triple glazed, and most of the materials for the building were manufactured locally.” We are interested in knowing what you think of  this home’s interiors- appealing and interesting or too plain for your tastes?  (Photography by Krista Jahnke)
