Objectspace is Aotearoa New Zealand’s leading gallery dedicated to design, craft and architecture. Through exhibitions, events and publishing, the gallery celebrates the past, present and future of the country’s material culture.

Objectspace’s architectural outpost in Ōtautahi Christchurch is the former workplace, home and gallery of Sir Miles Warren. Designed in 1975 to wrap around the back garden at 65 Cambridge Terrace, the space is crafted in Sir Miles’ iconic modernist style.

In March 2023, The Warren Trust generously gifted the use of the gallery space to Objectspace, with the support of its current tenants, Te Kahui Whaihanga NZIA Canterbury Branch and Athfield Architects. After a great six months of programming exhibitions and events in the space, Objectspace committed to continuing to run the space as a satellite gallery alongside their main space in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. 

You can visit free exhibitions and attend events at Objectspace’s Christchurch venue all year round.
