There was a secret in the back lane: an old house, shingled and ramshackle but big enough to be home. It had been hiding out behind the proper Victorians on a downtown street for about a century. “There was something about the mystique of the secret house,” says its co-owner, Rochelle Rubinstein. “We wanted to explore what it could become.”

After an extensive renovation led by LGA Architectural Partners, it became a fine, bright and basically new home. But it’s also a sort of template for how Toronto could add a few new housing units, in its laneways.
