Mini Craven sits on a 14’x70’ lot on Craven Road, in the ‘Tiny Town’ neighborhood of Toronto. First developed as worker housing in the 1880s, the street that was then a vacant railway corridor is now characterized by a series of 10’wide lots with homes between 300 and 500 square feet in size. Since that time, the houses along Craven Road have wavered between the unlawful and decrepit to the quirky and endearing. It is in this mixed and beautiful context that Mini Craven exists and participates in its neighbourhood.

The house that previously occupied the lot was a demolished drug lab and, subsequently, condemned. The client was nonetheless drawn to the vacant lot; he felt at home in the quirky and diverse neighbourhood. He also found it affordable and the perfect scale for the ultra-compact, fully detached house he dreamed of building. It would be an alternative to “loft living” and more importantly, a dwelling outside the confines of a condominium building.
