DORSET STREET FLATS - REPAIR

The Dorset Street Flats were badly damaged in the Canterbury earthquakes in 2010 / 2011. We have been commissioned to repair the flats, and design a replacement building for the demolished stables.

Quoted from Heritage New Zealand's summary: "The Dorset Street Flats in Christchurch were designed and built between 1956 and 1957 and are amongst the most important domestic buildings built in New Zealand in the second half of the twentieth century. Miles Warren (b. 1929, later Sir Miles Warren) designed them as a young architect and with these flats he launched an architectural vocabulary that would come to distinguish the 'Christchurch School' of post-war architecture and also helped to shape modernist architectural design nationally for over two decades."
