Down the long driveway, you’ll see it

"Down the long driveway, you'll see it" : By Mary Gaudin & Matthew Arnold // New Zealand Modernist Homes

Mary Gaudin is a New Zealand photographer mostly based in France – however on a recent trip home, armed with camera and an idea she hit the road to explore some of our country’s residential modernist gems. She explains that while the houses are “a little dusty and slightly worn around the edges” the goal of the profiles was to share them in a sense beyond their architectural features. Mary sort to capture them as they are lived in right now, how they sit in their surroundings and with the help of Matt Arnold, has shared stories of how their owners live in them now.

“Down the Long Driveway, You’ll see it”  is a wonderful, interesting book for the design lover in your life!

Nice note – The title of the book comes from a phrase in an email from Bruce Martin giving directions to his home at Bridge Pā. Filled with a lifetime’s of pottery both from Bruce and Estelle’s work, together with gifts from potter friends, the Martin’s home highlights the particular mix of craftsmanship and design which is reminiscent of all the homes shown in this book.

    Just purchased for my ’60s born architect parents for Christmas. Looks beautiful! I might be borrowing this one for extended periods I expect..
