Smallworks

What We Do

Smallworks is the pioneer of laneway housing in North America. We strongly believe in this form of housing; laneway homes provide hidden density, while preserving the neighborhoods we’ve come to know and love. 

Each of our homes is custom designed to meet the needs of our client. Having built nearly 200 laneway homes, we take pride in being able to use our experience to accurately project both cost and timeline, ensuring that our homes are built on time, on budget and with no surprises.

Lane House Styles

Modern Homes

Laneway houses we've built with an emphasis on sleek, minimal design.

Traditional Homes

Traditional style laneway houses, if done well, can look and feel as though they've always been a part of the neighborhood.

Single-level Laneway


With high ceilings, a more spacious interior (due to the lack of an interior stairwell) and a little less shading on the garden, it's no surprise these homes are becoming increasingly popular for Vancouverites.

Multi-level Laneway

Two level laneway homes are the most common offering in Vancouver, largely due to their minimal footprint in the backyard.
