At Home A Century of New Zealand Design by Douglas Lloyd-Jenkins

Taking the first decade of the twentieth century as its starting point, At Home joins the story of the New Zealand house just at the point when its inhabitants begin to ask whether a distinctive, uniquely New Zealand house might be possible. It then charts the way in which international movements, fashions and styles in twentieth century architecture and design were adopted, or adapted, by New Zealanders to create a house environment whether it be international in its style or an attempt at something more distinctly local. At Home goes behind the scenes of architectural history to look at the way 20th century New Zealanders lived in environments created for them by architects, designers and craftspeople united in the pursuit of the contemporary New Zealand home.
