About

At Aryze, we’re deeply committed to increasing the quality of housing and of communities in Victoria, BC. We know fostering community is about more than simply building homes, which is why we aim to contribute to the built environment in a way that enhances your sense of space and place.

We’ve been building custom homes since 2006, and in that time we’ve had the honour of constructing some of the most beautiful living environments on Vancouver Island.

When we’re not doing that, you’ll find us experimenting with a fledgling coffee shop, building a floating tree in the middle of the Gorge Waterway and engaging in Victoria’s political conversations.

Our Team

Our journey as a home builder is reflected in each of our projects, and the collective experience of our team.
