Lanehouse on Bartlett
A rare project type in Toronto, Lanehouse on Bartlett converts a former yarn factory in a residential neighbourhood, into custom-built loft-houses and flats. The project, consisting of 16 loft-style units ranging from 1,000 sq. ft. to 2,000 sq. ft., capitalizes on an opportunity to build additional laneway housing. The design is reminiscent of the building's industrial past. To convert the former factory space, Audax expanded the loft-style windows on the existing structure and added a third floor to house private rooftop gardens. Red brick and metal cladding are consistent design elements throughout both the converted and newly built residential structures.
