Custom Design West Coast Island Homes


Lanewave brings contemporary design to laneway housing

Graham Barron Design Inc is pleased to announce the launch of Lanewave, a new designer-driven laneway housing company based in Vancouver. Lanewave intends to bring new contemporary and modern design to the laneway housing market.

Lanewave features designs by three Vancouver intern architects: Graham Barron, Milos Begovic, and Mike Wartman. The designs are for laneway houses (also known as coach houses or granny flats) on the two most common lot sizes in Vancouver, 33'x122' and 50'x122'.

Graham's laneway house design, gb01.50, is for a 50' lot. It features an open plan kitchen/ living/ dining area on the ground floor, and two bedrooms upstairs. The style is a contemporary west coast sloped roof building, with standing seam metal roof and exposed cedar. The distinctive canted roof overhangs enhance privacy and reduce solar gain:

Milos's laneway house design, mb01.33, is for a modern one-storey building on a 33' lot. The design features an overheight living area and an efficient use of space at under 500 sq ft.  The design is pared-down modernism with minimal embellishments and clean black-and-white colour scheme.

Mike's laneway house design, mw01.33, is also for a 33' lot, but uses the 1-1/2 storeys to provide a modern design with sustainable features. The bedroom on the second floor overlooks a green roof. Expansive glazing on the main floor gives the overheight living area wide-open views of the courtyard outside, while slatted wood detailing provides shade and privacy.

With these designs, Lanewave has offerings for all of the laneway house options on various lots. In addition, Lanewave designers are happy to work with homeowners to customize these designs to suit their site, or to work on entirely new home designs. Look for new standard designs coming online soon.
