1737 Rockland Road
This stunning example of an 1899 Samuel McClure home is one of Victoria’s few heritage assets that remains a single-family residence. It is one of two homes, identically designed by Maclure, but is now the only one standing as its twin was lost to fire. The home has been lovingly restored and is lived in, maintained, and owned by Large & Co.’s founder Earl Large. Two additional prestigious homes are to be added to the lower part of the 29,000ft2 property and will reflect the historic nature of the original home and the Rockland Community.

Another example of Large & Co’s creative infill and sustainable land use where one home now becomes three single-family residences.

A second storey offer two additional bedrooms, a living room and bathroom for larger family living.

In 2011, Large & Co. built a 48 unit condominium in View Royal. Equipped with leading edge high speed fibre-optics and large indoor storage lockers on the roof, this green focused build was the first condo building on Vancouver Island to implement geothermal technology for all in-floor radiant heat. This feature along with others, resulted in a “Built Green Gold Standard” certification.

The famously derelict home that sat at the gateway to downtown Victoria, was brought back “from the brink of destruction” by Large & Co. Three stunning character strata units were created offering affordable space in the downtown area.

86 Dallas Road

Constructed in 1897, this building was the oldest standing duplex in Western Canada. Retaining its character and history, the building was restored, preserved, and converted to townhomes. Before commencing restoration, Large & Co., in cooperation with the Songhees First Nations, discovered many artifacts on the site, which were safely recovered and returned to the Songhees people, who then donated them to the Royal BC Museum.
