Contemporary West Coast Living

In a Creative Beachside Duplex



Multi-Family Custom Home



Year Completed




At the southernmost tip of Vancouver Island—steps away from the ocean—you will find a pair of beachside townhomes designed and built as urban infill homes by two lifelong friends: Aryze founders, Matthew Jardine and Ryan Goodman.

Project team:

Ryan Goodman and Matthew Jardine



When childhood friends became business partners at Aryze Developments, designing and building their dream home to accommodate their growing families was inevitable.

As their own clients, Matthew and Ryan designed and built the home to exemplify a modern west coast lifestyle while expressing their own architectural tastes.


The design pays homage to the craftsmanship found in neighbouring heritage homes while integrating impressive contemporary elements, like a floating staircase, heated white oak floors, soaring 18’ ceilings, marble slab rain showers and extensive architectural millwork throughout.

Luxurious, natural materials include white oak floors and built-ins as well as full size marble slabs.

Dramatic oversized rooflines incorporate the intricate basket weaved soffits made of fir sourced from Vancouver Island.

Bringing the outdoors in, these materials mimic the tones and textures of the surrounding landscapes and marine environment.

Centring around park and ocean views, the floor plan includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs.

The home includes an open concept main floor with a large office space.

The master bathroom was designed as a luxurious retreat using wooded marble slabs, thick tempered glass, and oversize plumbing to increase water pressure to the rain shower.

Rainwater Collection Display

The centrepiece of the home’s entrance is a unique, marble pivot door framed by the intricate water collection sculpture.

Not restricted to the rainwater collection system, the water freely flows into a carefully designed catchment system below, contributing to a healthy and sustainable home.
