Bowling Lane House
Existing behind a 1920's heritage house, this project seeks to maintain and preserve the original house while adding versatility and liveable space to the property. The laneway house's linear form frames the adjacent yard, with an alcove and large glass doors that allow the garden space to flow in to the central living room. On the ground floor, the house has a long, open layout where the kitchen, dining, and living spaces flow in to each other. On the second floor the bedroom and office spaces are separated by a bridge that spans the two ends of the house. The bridge also helps define the living space below, allowing for a double height ceiling. On the south side of the house facing the laneway, a balcony takes advantage of the unobstructed southern view of Calgary's downtown, and offers a great vantage point for watching lawn bowling games across the lane.
