Bonnington House
225 - 227 High Street


Year of Construction: 1883

The company purchased Bonnington House in July 2006 and commenced a full restoration with Stockman Builders in 2007, for which it received a Christchurch Civic Trust Award.

The sandstone facade was restored and the shop fronts replaced to replicate the originals. A steel and concrete frame was installed inside the structure and the top floors were reconstructed as a range of individually sized modern offices, with a shared gym, boardroom and kitchen facilities, as well as chill spaces. The ground floor now houses Vespa Bar, Libby and Ben - The Creative Agency, Turbo Staff and AO Architecture.

Bonnington House was designed by architect TS Lambert. The building originally housed Bonnington’s Chemists and Black, Beattie & Co Drapers. In approximately 1913, Bonnington's Chemists moved to a new premises further down the road. The building was then purchased by Strange and Co, which owned both adjacent buildings at the time.
