Thousands of homes were damaged or destroyed when more than 14,000 earthquakes and aftershocks hit Canterbury during 2010 and 2011. For many homeowners the task of repairing or rebuilding their home has only just begun, or worse, is still to come.MoreThousands of homes were damaged or destroyed when more than 14,000 earthquakes and aftershocks hit Canterbury during 2010 and 2011. For many homeowners the task of repairing or rebuilding their home has only just begun, or worse, is still to come. But amidst the continuing upheaval, progress has been made — as the stunning homes featured in this book attest. Ranging from restored heritage homes to brand-new contemporary dwellings on recovered sites, they are living spaces made beautiful once again. As well as providing their owners with renewed comfort and a sense of security, they offer a glimpse of the innovative responses that have emerged as people piece their homes back together or build afresh.
