+ 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.

14 Holliss Ave. Dr W Walshe House. Warren & Mahoney.

A variant on the Pixie House theme, this one designed in 1970, with a pyramid roof rather than the typical steep pitch gables. Aside from the more conventional roofline, all the Warren & Mahoney 1960s hallmarks are present: white concrete blocks, contrasting grey and rust-red windows.

The planter boxes and wrought iron are out of place, but the house is very well looked after by its original owner.
