We’ve been designing laneway houses for over 30 years.

We unlock your home's potential.

The City of Toronto has recently approved Laneway Houses (and soon Garden Suites) – modest scale, secondary dwellings, constructed behind the primary homes.

This zoning change allows homeowners, as of right, to enhance their property values, generate new rental units, generate additional income, establish live-work opportunities, and create new housing opportunities for multi-generational living within an extended family or unrelated tenants to live within mature neighbourhoods.

Frequently Asked Questions

We add versatility and value.

A secondary dwelling on your lot allows the homeowner to build a custom home office or studio, or to generate rental income that could subsidize a mortgage or finance retirement.

It’s a means to create additional housing without the land costs or ongoing condo fees and has certainty about the operating costs.

We design for sustainable living.

Living with less is modern, thoughtful, and as the cities grow denser, necessary.

It uses less materials and is designed and detailed to be extremely energy efficient to heat and cool. At LGA we consider both the embodied and operating carbon and specify the most energy-efficient infrastructure to ensure that each new project is brought to life in the most sustainable manner.

By replacing garages and cars with homes and people, we activate alleys as pedestrian thoroughfares and create pocket communities within established neighbourhoods.

We demonstrate why design matters with every project we do.

We listen to your goals and aspirations and identify the design opportunities to create a customized residence based on your site, the constraints of zoning, and budget – today and in the future.

We’ll guide you through every step of the process from start to completion.
