The Laneway Cottage is an Accessory Dwelling Unit which draws inspiration from alley-accessed homes found in Vancouver, B.C. A vaulted living space with massive windows maximize the daylight pouring into the living space, facing the eat-in kitchen beyond. The bathroom is generously sized, and includes a niche for a stackable laundry unit. Upstairs, a built-in desk looks over the living space below. The bedroom features vaulted ceilings, and a large closet. The exterior patio provides a cozy outdoor space, which can double as surface parking, accessed from the alley.
