A Striking Fusion of Traditional and Contemporary Styles

Paying Homage to Heritage Aesthetic



Custom Home



Year Completed





Centred on a gently sloping 19,000 sqft lot in the heart of Rockland, this classic duplex was designed with an exterior to honour the character of one of Victoria’s most historic neighbourhoods.

Ensuring the protection of century-old Garry Oak trees that surrounded the original building proved challenging.

As a result, this custom home exterior reflects the traditional architecture of the established neighbourhood, yet delivers contemporary features required for a modern lifestyle on the interior.
From unique custom millwork that includes a stained oak reveal in both window and door casings, to suspended sculptural ceiling treatments, the home is a display of high-quality craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Design Details

The home was built as two wings, connected by an interior skywalk that passes through a great room with soaring 20 ft ceilings.
