When restauranteur Joe Dort’s parents were looking to move out of their old home and rebuild anew, Calgary design firm Studio North pitched them the idea of building the main house with an additional dwelling unit – a laneway house. These slender builds smartly utilize unused square footage on existing lots, increasing urban density.

And so, Joe and his partner Tanya’s beautiful Bridgeland home came to be, with an exterior of galvanized steel reminiscent of Albertan grain elevators, interiors using magnificent West Coast cedar and plenty of points of entry for natural light. This utilitarian home features sustainable building practices, multifunctional spaces and a tropical sunroom paradise that remains vibrant even through Calgary’s coldest months.

Psst… check out the video tour of this sleek home here.
