When homeowners in Toronto asked Beauparlant Design to come up with a way to turn their tiny yard space into a parking area, the firm did them one better with their Laneway carport concept. The planted carport would not only give the residents a place to park, but also provide storage, a little green space, an outdoor eating and cooking area and a vegetable garden. The concept could just as easily be applied to any other urban home with a small yard that needs to be maximized to serve several different purposes.
