Reconstruction of four classic Sir Miles Warren apartments (JJ Connor Flats 1962), damaged beyond repair in the 2010/2011 earthquakes.

The four original apartments were constructed of exposed concrete blockwork, internally and externally, with exposed off-shutter concrete beams and chimneys.

The new apartments are constructed as closely as possible to the originals, but updated to modern requirements ... including insulation and double glazing.

Internally the apartments are modified to suit each owners requirements, with the material palette reflecting the original while introducing more timber to balance the concrete.
