From the unlikeliest of beginnings, character-filled spaces have emerged that imbue their owners' daily lives with a unique sense of history. Converted Houses showcases clever examples of New Zealand's early architecture being recycled for modern day living.

Author's Bio

Lucinda Diack has spent the last five years indulging a passion for architecture, interiors, craft and gardens by writing about people and their homes. After four years as the editor of the home and lifestyle magazine homestyle, she now spends her days working as a communication manager within the architectural sector in Christchurch. Her nights and weekends she can be found nestled in her home in Canterbury, an inspiring slice of paradise in which to craft stories of wonderful people and their inspiring homes. Converted Houses is her first book. Daniel Allen got his first camera at the age of seven, enrolled in a camera club at 10, built his first dark room at 11 and has been passionate about photography ever since. Originally from London, Daniel moved to New Zealand in 2003 and quickly establishd himself as one of New Zealand's leading lifestyle photographers. Based in Nelson, he covers New Zealand and the South Pacific for a diverse range of advertising, editorial and publishing clients. When not shooting Daniel can be found reading Postman Pat to one of his three daughters, cooking hot Thai food or simply enjoying the Nelson sunshine.
