+ About Christchurch Modern
We're not architects, we're not historians and we don't know much about anything. However we do like modern houses and Christchurch is a great place for them.
If you know of a house that deserves a mention please let us know. If we've made a mistake, do the same. If you like the site, tell your friends. If you hate the site, tell your friends you like it anyway. It's a minor white lie that anyone would forgive.

Dorset Towers. Warren & Mahoney.

On the corner of Dorset Street and Park Terrace are two later mid-rise blocks of apartments. “Dorset Towers” is built in the typical Warren & Mahoney masonry style with walls of load-bearing reinforced concrete block cavity construction (1970 – 73).

Apartments occupy the entire floor and the the staggered towers allow every unit a balcony facing the park (although all the park-facing balconies are now enclosed, they were originally open).
