+ 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.

19 Main Rd. Architect Unknown.

Unpainted concrete block is back in fashion, but it’s rare to see an original 70s home that’s avoided a Tuscan-themed makeover with aluminium joinery conservatory and alfresco deck & hot tub addition.

    This house belonged to my Uncle and Aunt. It was a Griffiths, Moffat and Partners home. George Griffiths was my Uncles brother. Unfortunately it did suffer in the earthquake and had to be demolished but it had nothing to do with the construction as you can see the chimney stayed standing like this for months before we had to get it taken down as a precaution. Part of the house was sitting on rock which moved in the quake and this caused the damage. Such a shame.
