Unsatisfied with what the housing market had to offer, Pete and Suzanne set off to transform a small urban back lot into a sensitive house that questions how we deal with our environment by challenging our conventional definition of “home”.

Laneway is a short documentary funded by Canada Council and produced by TWIXT Media Productions. Shot in the summer of 2003, the film focuses on a small house built in a back lane of a residential neighbourhood in downtown Toronto. The building’s site was originally used as a garage for a small landscaping company which two young emerging architects have transformed into a unique home.
