Seismic Award

Former St. Luke’s Vicarage

Entrant: Maiden Group

Built in 1867 St. Luke’s Vicarage is one of the oldest, best, and least modified of the Ecclesiologically inspired vicarages in New Zealand.  Architect Robert Speechly, who trained as an architect in London, designed the vicarage as an adaptation of the English domestic model to local New Zealand conditions.

Because of the very soft soils under the building a light weight ground improvement system, PIC Seismic Isolation Raft, was used. The current owners have ensured the future retention and relevance of an important part of Christchurch history.
