Christchurch College University of Canterbury (College House)

Waimari Road
Ilam, Canterbury
College House is New Zealand’s oldest and most traditional University College.

Warren & Mahoney (1964) were the architects of the Ilam buildings. The Chapel of the Upper Room dates from 1966- 67 and the library from 1968 - 70.

Built during the brutalist phase of the modern movement the concrete beams and white block walls derive from Warren's earlier work in Christchurch. The Dining Hall at Christ's College by Cecil Wood has served as a model for the wooden roofed chapel. The result is one of Mile Warren's most important buildings.
