  4. 4. Vancouver‟s laneway house rules(and single family zoning policies)take their cue from an idea of thepastoral cottage.Granny flats, coach house, lanecottage…
  5. 5. There are, however, otherprecedents for laneway living…
  6. 6. There are also other precedents fordesign and massing…….some of which are moreindigenous to the west coast thanCraftsman, Queen Anne orVictorian

  26. 26. Laneway Housing – Past / Present / Future
  27. 27. The future… …may be different from the past.
  28. 28. Buildings are time capsules that we send into the future…… and the future probably won‟t have the same relationship to low cost fuel
  29. 29. Global populations are growing, shifting, and becoming more urban……perhaps the pastoral cottage shouldn‟t be the only starting point for thinking about homes
  30. 30. Row houses. Amsterdam docklands.
  31. 31. Urban “Passive House” (a home so efficient it doesn‟t need a furnace)
  32. 32. A moreadventurous takeon the idea of„home‟, fromJapan….…of course
  33. 33. The City of Vancouver recently adopted a mandate to densify along commercial corridors……behind all of these commercial corridors are lanes which abut single–family zoned properties.
  34. 34. These lanes are a bit grittier than the typical residential lane…… and represent a place where we could be more adventurous with our thinking
  35. 35. We could also start to explore ideas for lane housing that come from a more urban idea of living…
  36. 36. … and reimagine the spaces between.
