Project Overview

24 Wanda Road was a small infill project in the City of St. Catharines. The project created a new lot in between two existing houses — 22 and 26 Wanda Road. The home that was constructed on the newly created lot known as 24 Wanda Road featured a two storey house with an interior accessory dwelling in the basement. The interior accessory dwelling provided a range of benefits for both prospective homeowners and the City. For the City, the inclusion of an accessory unit helped to improve affordable housing opportunities, and for homeowners, it provided an extra source of income that could go towards relieving expenses. As well, the accessory unit could provide larger, multi-generational families, with the adequate space, privacy, and shelter needed.

In 2016, the project won a Niagara Community Design Award for small scale project design.
