Petite Versailles – An Old World Lane House
Designing this laneway house was a treat for a number of reasons. Our clients had a strong vision, and applied themselves to designing their home with a lot of enthusiasm. Another reason this project sticks out is that we were able to have some fun with colour! The challenge was to keep the spirit of old world opulence alive in the final product.
The resulting home, largely obscured by the mature gardens that separate it from the main house, reads like a secret cottage out of a fairy tale. This is a single story laneway house that captures all of the property’s eligible 940 square feet. 1 bedroom, a flexible den featuring a 2 sided fireplace shared by the bedroom, 2 bathrooms and top of the line millwork and appliances – this home is a standout for Smallworks.
