Mendoza Lane "Laneway Home", Vancouver BC

In 2009, the Canadian city of Vancouver made an effort to increase density in its single-family neighbourhoods by allowing home owners to replace their garages with laneway houses. The Mendoza Lane House by Lanefab ( was the first laneway house completed.


In the U.S. lane = alley, and these types of homes are called "carriage houses" or "granny flats". The legal/policy structure behind them is called "inclusionary housing/zoning"
