Arts Centre of Christchurch

The Arts Centre of Christchurch comprises a complex of Gothic Revival buildings in the centre of Christchurch.  The oldest buildings date from the 1860s and were designed by notable architects including Benjamin Mountfort, Samuel Hurst Seager, William Armson and Collins and Harman.


The buildings were substantially damaged in the Canterbury earthquakes and are in the process of being structurally upgraded and refurnished.  DPA Architects has been appointed as site-wide heritage architects for this $290M project, one of the largest conservation projects in the southern hemisphere.
