I've spent a lot of time thinking about Coach Houses these past few years. That work has gone into my architecture thesis for the University of Waterloo. The thesis, The Small-er House Design Scheme, fixates on the origins and values that created Canada's postwar suburbs and what makes Coach Houses the perfect form of infill to augment these declining communities.
If you are interested in Coach Houses or thinking of building one here in Ottawa, consider reading The Small-er House Design Scheme(9MBs), inspired by the postwar efforts of the Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation. Just follow the link and it should open in a new window.
Stay tuned for updates to this Coach House page including 3D models and design explorations throughout the 2017.
