+ 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.

55 Orr Crescent. MJ Foster House. Warren & Mahoney.

Turns out, there’s a little bit of Miles in the Hutt. For Wellingtonians who like a little Christchurch Modern, we present the first MJ Foster House – five years before going the whole hog in Havelock North, MJ commissioned this Lower Hutt pixie as a test run.

It looks really nice with it’s T&G walls, but the concrete lintels over the windows and doors really need painting a dark grey; the house looks like it lost its eyebrows in an undergraduate prank.

Thanks Will for the tip.
