+ 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.

22 Chepstow Ave. K Uren House. Warren & Mahoney.

A very early example and supposedly the eighth Warren & Mahoney house built. Known as the K. Uren House, small but perfectly formed with lots of architecture in a small package, just the way we like it. Very original with what looks like an extra extension at the back. Extension not in keeping. Originally 2 bedrooms. Great details and a very clear, concise layout, particularly the relationship between the big beam that flys across, the confident chimney, the overall proportions, the sun room that projects out, the car port and garden wall, the spindliness of the columns supporting the car port.
