Box 112 is thrilled to be the naming sponsor for the Canterbury Heritage Awards 2020: as a team, they are passionate about reinterpreting and rejuvenating the heritage of our city, and see the Awards as an opportunity to support and recognise others doing the same.
Box 112’s mission is to help make Christchurch the most liveable city in the world.
Comprised of Sam Rofe, Rob Farrell and James Stringer, Box 112 has restored or are in the process of restoring a number of buildings throughout the city, including buildings in Welles Street, St Asaph St, Walker Street, Oxford Terrace and High Street. They have a focus on remediating buildings ‘with heart’ and are set to celebrate the opening of 176 Oxford Terrace (the building known to most of Christchurch as ‘Caffé Roma’) very shortly. They are also working on the Public Trust Office building and have recently purchased 159 Manchester Street, with big visions for both.
As a collective, they aim to to create authentic, one off spaces for businesses and ventures to leverage off and thrive; they describe themselves as investors, developers, constructors and truth tellers. Committed to working with incredible people to enhance the mana of our city, they help to bring great projects to reality.
