Kōrero: Domestic architecture

Athfield's philosophy

During the 1970s Wellington-based architects Ian Athfield and Roger Walker were instrumental in redefining modern domestic architecture. Inspired by New Zealand's colonial buildings, they dispensed with the open planning of post-war homes and reintroduced multiple small places, to which they gave individual expression. In this 1979 television documentary, Athfield discusses what made his houses distinctive.
