Soul Full. What a feeling: friendly, snug, even offbeat – houses that tuck you in.
Here 12 features houses that offer a sense of warmth and enclosure – a sense of personality. That's amplified by the hand-drawn 'Little Guys' – abstract figures by our guest art director, Karolina Lutkiewicz.
On the cover: an off-grid cabin in the Abel Tasman by Johnstone Callaghan Architects, built from timber and Corten steel.
Inside: the longtime home of artist Miriam van Wezel and architect Pete Bossley; a house on the coast near Ngāmotu New Plymouth by Evelyn McNamara; Adele McNab reworks her mother's Grey Lynn bungalow; and Annie Wilson of MIranda Gallery builds a straw-bale house for art.
Also! Robert Leonard profiles artist Zac Langdon-Pole; a clever rework of a Britomart loft, a new bistro in Te-Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington and new furniture by Gerrard Dombroski.
Annnd.... We call for entries to the Here Awards 2022!
