On Sunday I went on a romantical architectural date with my pal @helloalexfulton where, thanks to the organization of @coca.chch, we had the total pleasure of touring some of @christchurchnz’s residential, modernist gems. I’ve popped a big story up for you to trawl! My main takeaways were: 💙The feeling of space is more in design than square footage 💙 Pay as much attention to your ceilings as you would your floors 💙 Built in furniture, mezzanine spaces, sky lights, split levels and higher ceilings make for a delicious place to live!!! 💙💙 #christchurchnz #modernistarchitecture #modernistinteriors #interiordesign #nzhomes #newzealandhomes #realhomes
