6 unconventional townhomes by Aryze and D’Arcy Jones Architecture. Starting at $799,000
For the design of Pearl Block, D'Arcy Jones Architecture fit a small grouping of 6 townhomes on a wacky site that is shaped like piece of pizza. The only way to do this while creating homes that the design team would want to live in themselves was to manipulate the traditional rowhouse design, while ensuring it maintained the core principles of a front door on the street, 3-bedrooms, and yard space for the kids.

The driveway is slightly sunken and contained with hedging. With an exterior featuring textured stucco planes that step back at each townhome, Pearl Block takes cues from Victoria’s stately turn-of-the-century houses.
Thinking back to our childhood, many of our memories were made in our backyards. Pearl Block is a townhouse with an unconventional backyard; an outdoor living room as large as the footprint of your home on your rooftop! Each rooftop deck is surrounded by tall parapets that are 6’ high so you have complete privacy. They are super safe and provide all the benefits of a backyard less the maintenance.
A healthy, durable home. We’re exploring ways to use materials more simply and honestly. Pine, a sustainable, local wood floor that will patina with your use; exposed steel and plywood; and a monochromatic material palette to soothe and calm. We are uncompromising on the creativity of our design, but committed to functionality and longevity.
A master bath and bed that you'll feel comfortable in. With current bathroom design trending towards all-white-everything, we thought we'd leave the clinical feel at the door and use sandstone colour blocks that will greet you with softness and warmth.
A car at your service. Welcome to the future of driving with Modo car share. Each Pearl Block unit comes with a lifetime membership that allows owners to pick-up and drop-off from the dedicated Modo car share space on the property. Each membership covers gas, insurance, maintenance, cleaning, parking, privileges, and more. Pearl Block makes car sharing easy; choose your own Modo adventure.
Part of the mission of Pearl Block was to bring transparency to the real estate process. To this end, we decided to uncover the true cost of each component that went into Pearl Block, complete with our own revenue earned. As aspiring young homeowners, we believe that the value of one of the biggest purchases in our lives should not be an ambiguous number. Through our transparent homeownership mission, we hope to make the value of Pearl Block apparent; the legacy of craftsmanship from our 10 years of experience in custom home building married with the intelligence behind D’Arcy Jones Architects, executing on details together that will integrate seamlessly into your life.
Designed by D'Arcy Jones Architects
D’Arcy Jones Architects is a leading Canadian architectural practice and the recipient of provincial and national awards for architecture and design. His firm has been published widely in Canadian Architect, Dwell Magazine, Grey Magazine and Western Living. D'Arcy conceived Pearl Block to address the missing middle; the kind of not single-family, not condo-tower-apartment style housing that provides enough room for parents, a couple of kids and a ground-level front door. This type of housing is key to creating sustainable, walkable urban neighbourhoods and fostering a sense of community.
A compact, walkable neighbourhood. Pearl Block is centrally located within Oaklands, a neighbourhood full of amenities. From Hillside Mall to the neighbourhood farmers markets and convenience stores, schools and health offices, urban residential and single-family homes, tree-lined pedestrian streets, and arterial, well-serviced transit routes, we picked Oaklands for Pearl Block because we believe a functional and conducive life should be located in a well-connected community.
