+ 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.

299 Lake Terrace Rd. Peter Beaven.

Interesting. An early Peter Beaven design -prior to his Scandinavian phase and long before his  jaunty ‘gothic’ modernism –  uncharacteristically riffing off the international style with a flat roof and living room wall of glass. Sweet, original condition too.

    We have recently purchased this property and would like to get some advice about refreshing it whilst retaining all the original features, which we love. Any information about who to approach would be greatly appreciated.

    Congratulations! I’d definitely recommend contacting an architect to help and the NZIA will be able to point you in the right direction.

    I drove past this house just last week, and it really caught my eye! This is my first visit to this website as I’m trying to figure out who might’ve designed some units in Merivale that a friend has just moved into. Anyway, lovely to see this house featured. Best of luck to the new owners, I’m a bit jealous to say the least!
