Government Buildings

Cathedral Square
Christchurch, Canterbury
The masterpiece of Christchurch architect J.C. Maddison, the imposing Renaissance Revival style of the Government Buildings provides a perfect foil for one of the country’s finest Gothic Revival commercial buildings on the opposite corner of Worcester Street, the Press Building. (now demolished).

Once the workplace of government bureaucrats, the Government Buildings was saved from possible demolition and now houses an upmarket hotel and apartments.
