Parkdale Laneway House Built Using Passive House Principles

Nestled in Parkdale, Toronto, we’ve transformed six underutilized parking spaces into a sustainable, light-filled laneway house, offering a unique blend of comfort and energy efficiency. Leveraging passive house principles, this project features in-floor radiant heating, efficient insulation, and an innovative “breathing wall” for continuous ventilation, all whilst maintaining a clean design aesthetic. This transformation not only pays homage to Toronto’s garage vernacular with its robust exterior but also opens new vistas for sustainable, urban living.
