Project: Billens Replacement Building

The original Billens Building was a well-loved heritage building that miraculously survived the Canterbury earthquakes. Tragically, the remains were destroyed by arson in 2012 as the owner stood and watched. The Billens Replacement Building is the owner’s tribute to and celebration of the site’s historic roots. Through meticulous attention to detail, a spectacular new art-deco building has been created.

This row of five small retail premises replaces a Victorian era block of shops which, after operating for over 100 years, sustained major earthquake damage. The asymmetrical footprint demanded a unique roof design, and this was incorporated as a striking feature of the building’s façade.
