The dwellings depicted in plans, elevations, sections, details, and perspectives range from small Auckland inner city flats through to large, stately homes complete with servants’ quarters in rural Hawke’s Bay. Drawings date from the late 1800s through to 2000 and include works by New Zealand architects MK Draffin, WA Holman, JJ Hackshaw, Nigel Cook, Mike Austin and Simon Twose.
To view the original drawings held in the Architecture Archive please contact Sarah Cox, Architecture Archivist, to arrange an appointment.
The display runs until early June.
