+ 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.

4 Gunns Cr. Ross W T Fielding House. Charles R Thomas.

A lovely home for builder Ross Fielding. Originally the garage was open and accentuated the sculptural roof which folds down over the sides of the house and rests lightly on the exterior walls.

Charles Thomas was the designer of the NZIA award winning Catholic Church in Sockburn.

    There are another 2 x Charles Thomas Homes on Gunns Cres sim to this-drectly opp. is a W&M 2 story exposed masonry house with pool/pool house, another large elongated Miles Pixie above on the hill and then the wackey butterfly roofed house by Charles Thomas around the corner on 18 Holliss Ave (a Don D.is next to it and them another Miles pixie) which he did the same year as the Sockburn Church-take a look in Glamis Place just down Holliss-lots more worth a look at-its everywhere!
