custom homes


Roca's Custom Home Developments feature some of Ottawa's most unique and unparalleled custom homes. From the award winning Canal Homes, to the Whitehaven Collection - Roca has created a truly unique brand of high-end custom homes, taking the concept of Urban Developments to a new level. Through this approach we strive to make a lasting impact in some of Ottawa's most desired neighbourhoods.

Roca's Custom Home Developments typically feature two or more new homes to-be-built on one of our existing sites. Architectural concept designs by Barry J Hobin will depict size, scale, amenities as well as the overall architectural style. Homeowners will have the opportunity to purchase a home (and the lot) pre-construction and to customize the home within the framework of the architectural design to suit their particular needs. The result is a cohesive development conceived as one, yet fully customized to suit each individual home owner.

Roca Homes' collaborative relationship with award-winning architect Barry Hobin is a true partnership. New project sites are thoroughly evaluated together, considering what is present and envisioning the potential for what could be one day. They allow the processes of design and development to influence and inspire one another, to create projects that perfectly balances the concerns of architect, developer – and, ultimately, homeowner.
