Rannoch

It’s been said someone’s home is an outward expression of what lies within.
Evidence to suggest a life, a way of living. 

Rannoch, a gracious Arts and Crafts style property on the side of Auckland’s
Mt Eden volcano, exudes the character, energy and passions of it’s current
resident, Sir James Wallace.

Known as one of New Zealand’s biggest arts patrons, Sir James began
purchasing and commissioning works in the 1960’s after being inspired
by the galleries of Boston while on a scholarship from King’s College.

His collection, which now numbers in excess of 8000 pieces has, for many
years brought a juxtaposition between a wide breadth of contemporary
New Zealand art practice and the elegant, century-old interior and exterior
spaces of the Rannoch estate.

To acknowledge Rannoch’s unique position in the history of New Zealand
Art and to celebrate it’s centenary as a dwelling, this publication was
commissioned to capture it’s essence by Simon Devitt, International
Photographer of Architecture.
