Photo Book: Portrait of a House

A whopping congrats to Simon Devitt on the launch of his new book Portrait of a House.

If you’ve ever driven into Wellington and looked up to the cliffs of Kandallah you would have seen the unmissable spectacle of architect Ian Athfield’s own, wonderful home, clinging to the hillside and bracing itself against the frequent and fierce Southern gales.

Simon has created a limited edition photo book to document this legendary abode with a series of stunning colour and black and white images which range from expansive shots of the house and it’s wildly majestic surrounds, to detailed photos of a home with a magical succession of nooks and crannies.

What could look tastier on your table?
