The workspace you need, steps from home

It’s more than just a laneway home. 

Whether you’re an architect, childcare worker, or music producer, a Smallworks studio is perfectly sized for productivity. We handle all of the details, big and small, to create a flexible space adapted to your unique needs.

Don’t put your laneway home in a box

Laneway homes are a versatile investment that can serve you and your family for years to come. We believe that every space should be designed to be beautiful, functional, and efficient.

Materials & Finishes

Our core vision for interior design is an honest approach to materiality (if it looks like wood, its wood), simplicity and an understated elegance.


We work with you to make a home that honours the character of your family and the neighbourhood – either by blending in or standing out.


It’s all in the details

Every single Smallworks home is unique and custom designed to suit the specific needs of out clients. We’ve worked hard to get great prices on high quality, elegant, yet durable products to keep your home on budget and looking great for generations.

We place emphasis on functionality, which is why all of our appliances have been hand selected based off of valuable client feedback.


Luis Barragán once said – “In the creation of architectural space, what is essential is the play of shadow and light.” (We also have a broad selection of options for lighting the home through more modern means)


Millwork is the soul of your home, which is why we make capturing your lifestyle a priority through a variety of standard and custom options.
