The much anticipated follow-up to the bestselling Big House, Small House.

City House, Country House explores 40 of New Zealand’s most outstanding residential projects in locations ranging from intensely urban to spectacularly remote. New family homes, suburban alterations, city apartments, coastal beach houses and rural retreats are all included in this impressive collection of recently completed projects, reflecting a growing diversity of living styles and architectural responses across the country.

Thoughtfully photographed and with accompanying plans and text that probes the design rationale behind each project, this is a highly collectable survey of some of New Zealand’s most innovative and interesting homes.
