Folio director Andrea Stevens co-authored the book Beyond the State: New Zealand State Houses from Modest to Modern in association with architectural historian Bill McKay. It is a biography and celebration of the iconic New Zealand state house, built in their thousands by the First Labour Government. Photography by Simon Devitt. Beyond the State was shortlisted in the New Zealand Post Book Awards in 2014.
In this photo book, photographer Simon Devitt and writer Andrea Stevens collaborated to showcase New Zealand residential architecture that responds to the climate and the outdoors. They documented over 20 innovative designs, ranging from simple island baches (weekenders) and country houses to high-end city retreats.
