An Architecturally Significant Collection of Condos and Townhomes
Located in James Bay’s Legislature District
The homes at Rotunda acknowledge the neighbourhood’s historic past through a classic design sensibility that’s matched by modern details.
Striking Architectural Details Meet Historic Materials
Rotunda encapsulates the character and charm of James Bay’s historical Legislature District, with an architectural design that complements the neighbourhood’s existing built fabric while combining contemporary elements for modern living.
The result is a thoughtfully articulated design by D’Arcy Jones Architecture which centres around a striking open courtyard, welcoming generous natural light and a sense of airiness into the homes.
The variety of built and unbuilt sites surrounding Rotunda informed the basic shape of the building, taking into consideration the smaller grained neighbouring buildings to the northwest. The resulting design is two separate small-scale buildings flanking a central U-shaped courtyard. These three volumes float over an open-air parking space.
By pulling the building into two halves to create a central courtyard, midday sun will pass through the two smaller buildings letting light into the neighbouring yards, while simultaneously offering light from both sides on all homes. The building’s residential units all face onto the courtyard, creating east-west orientations that prevent midday overheating while providing passive cooling through cross ventilation.
Bright, Airy & Breathable Homes for Modern Living
With nearly two decades of home-building experience we look to deliver homes that are attainable to more people in their journey along the housing continuum. The interiors at Rotunda are designed for architectural relevance and durability, with high-quality, lasting materials and unexpected details that have been carefully curated.
Oversize quartz countertops and backsplashes accent the kitchens and baths, while engineered White Oak wide plank hardwood flooring spans the main areas of the homes.
Appliances by Bosch® and Moffat®, with integrated wall cabinetry throughout for a minimalist aesthetic. Double 24” Moffat refrigerators offer plenty of cold space, while a Bosch® wall oven, cooktop and drop door microwave offer multi-functional cooking.
Centred in Victoria’s vibrant James Bay neighbourhood, Rotunda is steps from the village and the Legislature District—and only minutes from downtown.
As an established community with room to grow, Rotunda’s unit variety creates housing for a mix of people, bringing new vibrancy to neighbourhood’s walkable town center filled with a café, pub, grocery store and playground—a quintessential 15 minute city lifestyle.
