The Intergenerational family home

The Intergenerational House is a prototype 3,000 sf energy-efficient residence inspired by multi-generational living in close yet separate quarters as can be found in Europe and Asia. The design provides a three-storey main house, lower suite and a laneway house on a typical 33’ x 122’ Vancouver building lot with space allocated as: two adults and two children in the main house, grandparents in the spacious, lower two-bedroom suite, and tenants in the small laneway home, which could possibly house the children in future.
