Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for THE NEW ZEALAND HOUSE by Michael Fowler and Robert van de Voort.

“The New Zealand House is a lavishly illustrated celebration of the evolving history of housing in this country; the influences which caused it to differ from housing in other parts of the world and the effects on its development by overseas architects as well as the undoubted talents of New Zealand architects. The story starts with the first Europeans to set foot on New Zealand soil; the shelters, houses and homesteads they constructed from the timber they felled and the stone they quarried. Early settlers and the generations that followed used these indigenous resources to build homes and towns carved out of forest or raised on the plains. The story continues as new ideas and new materials are introduced, ever-changing, progressive. The result is a kaleidoscope of architectural styles that depicts the uniqueness of the New Zealand house.”
