This house was designed by Lanefab, Mendoza lane house was the first ‘laneway house’ finished under the city of Vancouver’s 2009 bylaw that allowed for small infill dwellings to be added onto existing single family properties throughout the city. The house consist of living room, dining room, kitchen, upstairs – along with a balcony.
