$80.00 Inc GST

What makes Aotearoa New Zealand one of the most picturesque countries in the world? Its striking landscape can range from the snow-capped alps to the breezy ocean in a few hundred kilometres, requiring a creative approach to home building that is responsive to the natural environment – a challenge skilfully accepted by contemporary architects inspired to create modern iterations of the barn, whare and bach.

Weaving through dreamy and dramatic locations, including a crescent-moon shaped bach in Tutukaka and a bivvy house inspired by a goldminers hut overlooking Lake Wakatipu, Cape to Bluff features thirty exceptional houses that celebrate the new dawn of New Zealand architecture that is at once self-assured, poetic and sustainable.
