The Laneway Housing Experience

The laneway housing experience follows two Calgarians through the process to gain approvals from The City of Calgary to legally build a backyard secondary suite to live in.

Mattew Kennedy and Mark Erickson are the owners of Studio North, a small, local design firm. They have purchased Withrow Residence, a designated heritage house in the northwest community of Parkdale. They hope to refurbish the large property overlooking the Bow River to rent to a tenant and build a Backyard suite, or Laneway House, along the back alley and above the garage. The video series below is their story.
