Laneway House

Our brief was to design a compact 150 SQM single level house on a 281 SQM site located in a small suburban laneway – a classic downsizing scenario.  The clients required a low maintenance new house that uses minimal energy to run.  To that end an array of sustainable features has been included.  The creation of a contemporary piece of architecture that responds appropriately to its varied heritage and industrial context was a fundamental challenge.
