+ 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.

31 Newbridge Pl. Messervy House. Allan Mitchener.

This house is FOR RENT. Just saying.  It sits at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, in a pocket of what must be the city’s highest concentration of homes in the Christchurch Style, yet Mitchener’s 1964 design stands apart as a great example of the breed and one of Christchurch’s best small houses of the time.

    Very interested in this house if for sale. I met Alan Mitchener when about 18. We are thinking of moving back to Ch-ch, my wife (a former architect) and I (who worked briefly in John Collins’ Office) like this design–and location. Hope the house is still standing! If on market, or likely to come on market over next few years, please let me know.
    Thank-you, and best wishes for the Christmas season.
