Chamber of Secrets on Frederick Street

The Chamber of Secrets (2007) from 150 Frederick Street was created by a group of five Potter fans, the sign depicting the Hogwarts crest was painted by Will.

The Chamber of Secrets

The flat won the Te Roopu Maori “Best Name or Sign” in OUSA’s 2007 House & Garden awards. The judges thought the sign on this flat was “Fucking awesome!” and the flatmates were awarded with a trophy for best flat name and a $100 grocery voucher.[1] When the tenants of 2008 didn’t want the sign, the Chamber Boys took it with them to their subsequent flat.  When I met up with them the sign was hanging on their lounge room wall.

Originally owned and utilised by the Otago Polytechnic, this house has recently become a student flat. It’s name reflects the grand stand inside, useful for watching games on TV and through the window at Logan Park.
