+ 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.

118 Ilam Rd. Holdsworth House. Charles Thomas.

The crappy photos don’t do this house justice. Currently occupied by the University of Canterbury’s ‘Publications Team’, this former home seems remarkably intact. Inside, the fittings and layout are all there and the living, dining and bedrooms simply occupied by regulation office furniture. It wouldn’t take much to return it to what it should be.

  1. Mark Holdsworth Says:

    We built the house in the mid 1960′s and lived there for about 12 years with our three children who attended Ilam School. The house was the first building Charles Thomas designed after going out on his own as an architect (we were at BHS together).
