Big House, Small House: New Houses by New Zealand Architects, John Walsh

Sixty outstanding architect-designed new New Zealand homes.

John Walsh and Patrick Reynolds are back with their third handsome New Zealand residential architecture book, which this time covers 60 projects built since 2007 and ranging from the small — baches, studios and apartments—through to the big—substantial new residences and conversions, homes with budgets to match their scale.

Walsh and Reynolds have track records as New Zealand's preeminent architectural writer and photographer respectively. This time they are joined by a team of eminently well qualified contributing writers who, under John Walsh's editorial supervision, bring together a very significant survey of residential architecture endeavour in recent years.

Thoughtfully written, beautifully photographed and handsomely produced, this massive book is unrivalled. Complete with plans, and enormously comprehensive, it is both a celebration and a sourcebook of New Zealand's best architectural work.
