La Petite Maison dans la Cour

Living Room

This magnificent ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) coach house in Montreal, Quebec was designed by La Shed Architecture.

This Backyard Tiny House replaces a small backyard house originally built in 1890. This small house has shared the land of another single-family dwelling since 1910. It is an inspiring example of how we can gently densify urban cores without compromising on quality  of life and the spirit of downtown living.
