Architecture: Krush Architecture Ltd.
Construction: Knight Construction
The award winning Latimer Apartments are three two-storey townhouses in the heart of Christchurch. The structure includes textured precast concrete walls with a black oxide finish, rib and infill suspended floors and LVL roof framing. A precast concrete floor with steel beams forms a 3m cantilever balcony, providing views towards Latimer Square. The foundation system uses a gravel raft for the front two units and screw piles for the rear unit, due to its proximity to the boundary and adjacent buildings.
