Christ's College West Wing

 The Christ’s College campus is a unique collection of heritage buildings in the heart of Christchurch’s heritage precinct. The opportunity to rebuild teaching and staff facilities arose as a result of the Christchurch earthquakes of 2010 and 2011. Previously, classrooms in this part of the campus were arranged in small groups in clusters with individual entrances and stairwells, which hampered flexibility and collegiality. As a first phase of design, options were developed to show how site planning and circulation could be reconfigured. Architectural elements from the existing context were then used as the starting point for further design development. The completed building is the largest single project completed on the campus. It contains 18 teaching spaces, a large function room and a new staff centre. It is divided into three seismically separated structures, each with their own damage-resisting structural systems. Completed in mid 2015, this project received the supreme Future Heritage Award in the Canterbury Heritage Awards in 2016.   ❮
