“Portrait of a House comprises a stunning series of photographs taken by Simon Devitt of the Athfield House, otherwise known as ‘the village on the hill’ – an architectural experiment started by New Zealand architect Ian Athfield in 1965 in Khandallah, Wellington.

This book compiles Devitt’s photographs of the incredible house as well as portraits, paintings and plans from the Athfield archive.

Beautifully produced and published by Balasoglou Books (Auckland), it proves both rigorous and personal in tenor.”
