The picture you see below is the Old Post Office Building at 209 Tuam Street in Christchurch, and I love it.
Originally designed by J.T Mair and built in 1932, the building’s owner has given Carus the exciting and challenging brief of returning the structure to its original grandeur.
This project is more than just simply applying paint to the walls. This is an opportunity to give back to the Christchurch community and it’s a responsibility we take seriously.
Projects like restoring the Old Post Office Building are a big part of why I chose to work with the team at Carus. In a city that lost so many of its heritage buildings in the 2011 earthquakes it’s nice to be a small part of maintaining the city’s past, for its future generations.
Over the next few weeks we will be updating the Carus Group Ltd. page with our progress. A big thank you to Nick Robinson, and the team at Resene in Christchurch for partnering with Carus on this project.
To learn a wee bit more about the building and its current owner have a look and listen to the following article on the High Street Story website. The site is a must for those who enjoy learning about historical buildings in Christchurch.
