Blue Lantern Loft
This bachelor pad, a Loft-Style Laneway House, is a great place to hang out, with exterior deck, full bath and kitchen, lofted living area: all in just 475 square feet + garage.
Custom concrete floors and guards blend in with our Smallworks signature interior details while referencing the client’s passion for comics and graphic art.
"We contacted Smallworks back in 2007 expressing interest in what was then referred to as ‘backyard cottages’ after reading an article in the Vancouver Sun: The Urban Cottage. Then we had to wait a couple of years due to fact that the city had to setup the Eco-density Charter but in the meantime there was the 2009 BC Home & Garden show that served to whet our desire of having a laneway house. Walking through Smallworks’ ’09 model home cemented the fact that if the eco-density charter went through, Smallworks would be our 1st choice as builders. Dealing with the company as a whole has been a very pleasant experience, from initial contact to the various follow ups, to finally sitting down with the designer to customize our laneway house, all the way to the end product. Smallworks provided excellent service and listened to concerns and made changes accordingly or directed us to services that we could use. Now about the house itself, we chose the open loft design as we love the light, open, airy feel it gives the space, and with windows pretty much on all four sides natural light floods into the space. Having been in the space for the past 6 months my only regret is that I really should have thought about storage space a little bit more. That being said it is MY space and I love it! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Smallworks as THE laneway house builder."
