Rhodes Street, Christchurch
Architecture: MCD Architecture
Construction: CYB Construction Ltd.
The Rhodes St Apartments project involved the substantial renovation of a 1934 building, which was damaged by the Christchurch earthquakes. Four flats have been turned into two spacious flats, which were rebuilt from the ground up, starting with the new foundations. It was decided to capitalise on the simple, timber exterior look and retain as much of the timber and 1930s features on the inside where possible. The owners and designers have followed the architect’s intent to create a high quality building and have retained features of an American Colonial Revival style.
