More Laneway Discoveries


I went for a walk along Croft St which is actually a laneway in mid Toronto. There have been a lot of conversions in this lane, some from old factories and some where smaller existing structures have been "renovated" beyond recognition. It's hard to get neighbours to accept new laneway construction so it usually has to start with a pre-existing building. This super modern house, designed by Kohn Shnier Architects, has been constructed on the site of a tiny old house.

I like the look of this home. Very modern and surely good use of the space. I like the colour too which is nicely complimented by the ivy.
