The Houses of Bernard Cox

The Houses of Bernard Cox

Bernard Cox (1905 - 1970) was a Palmerston North architect. The houses designed by Cox are important as examples of modernism, a major twentieth century movement that revolutionised the way houses are designed and constructed and which expressed the social vision of the mid-twentieth century. This booklet, detailing Cox's life and some of his buildings, was written to accompany an exhibition mounted by the Manawatu Branch of the New Zealand Historic Places Trust.

Square Edge clock

Square Edge clock

The former Municipal Chambers became an arts centre, known as ‘Square Edge’ when it was vacated by the Palmerston North City Council in 1980. Built as the Palmerston North City Council Municipal building in 1944-1945, it was designed by Reginald Thorrold Jaggard. The Council had occupied the same site in the former Colonial Bank of New Zealand building until it was demolished to make way for their new offices. It retained the 1924 addition (which contained the Council Chamber) at the rear. The building was repainted in 2010.
