Rhodo by ARYZE

In the heart of the Gonzales neighbourhood, at the southernmost point of Victoria, we’re planning a new community of homes with Shape Architecture, a leading Vancouver based architect and winner of the 2018 AIBC Lieutenant-Governor’s Medal.

Project Partner:
Purdey Group

A collection of 17 ground-oriented townhomes, Rhodo is designed as a mews, a sensitive infill development that follows a model that has been used historically in the great pedestrian cities of the world.

The project concept is composed of six 2-bedroom houses, two 4-bedroom townhouses and nine 3-bedroom townhouses. We've hidden cars and bicycles in a single storey of underground parking, providing dedicated storage for 22 cars and 41 bicycles. There is also a dedicated dog wash and storage for standup paddle boards and kayaks. The project is in the early phases of the development process with our development application formally accepted by the City of Victoria October, 2017

Garden & Beach Lifestyle

Following from the urban design concept precedent of a small country village, the project is conceived as a collection of compact beach homes. Entrances are oriented to the street edge or courtyard, while planters and vegetation mediate between the built form and site edges. Semi-private outdoor patios maintain visual connections to public spaces, allowing for interactions between neighbours. Each building, with a maximum of 7 units, has distinct entrances and is organized around a central courtyard to which all pedestrian routes lead.
