Canadian firm Studio North designed a two-storey residency in Calgary that boasts clean white simplicity, a second-hand fire poll and a built-in dog nook. The newly built home is a fitting example of a laneway house—a form of housing built into a pre-existing lot that is gaining popularity in Canada.
Studio North took on this architectural project as it was an opportunity to "save one of Calgary's heritage houses while building an affordable compact living space in the inner city." The home is perfect for a family, as the repurposed fireman's pole facilitates a fun environment for a child, while the built-in dog nook makes any canine companion feel truly at home and part of the family.
