This block of four flats, for Miss Gladys Cook, is on a corner site facing Cranmer Square, in the heart of Christchurch. Architecturally it is characterised by simple bold massing and compact planning. The two flats at the southern end of the building have been brought forward to obtain their share of sun.

Each flat is 900 sq. feet in area and contains a large living-room, two bedrooms, kitchen with meals alcove, bathroom, etc.

The building is timber framed and sheathed with 6" x 1" bevel backed weatherboards. The roof is of three layers of fabric and the whole building is painted white.
