LEED-Accredited Architect and Founder of Lanefab Homes
Bryn Davidson is the LEED-accredited Designer, who along with Project Manager Mat Turner lead the team at Lanefab housing, a design/build company focused on creating beautiful and sustainable laneway homes (“ADU’s”) in the city of Vancouver. Recipients of the Scotiabank EcoLiving Award, and the Arthur Erickson Memorial Award, they have been featured in Dwell Magazine, Gray Magazine, Forbes, the New York Times, and at TedX Events. Authors of Prefabulous: Small Homes and Little House In The City, their projects are all unique; they are built for a specific site and client, and are consistently rated among Canada’s most energy efficient.
We have a great love of mid-century modern and west coast modern design – where there is a strong indoor-outdoor connection and an emphasis on honest material expression using natural local materials.
Balanced against this is our interest in the Passive House movement – which focuses on simple forms, thick walls and air-tight envelopes to create homes that are so efficient that they don’t need a heating system.
Where we tend to end up, then, is a mash-up of Passive House and west coast modernism.
We like to employ thick walls , high performance windows, and passive solar strategies – but those elements are typically mixed in with a more articulated building form and a greater connection between the inside and out.
