About the Author

Catherine Foster is a freelance writer with a specific interest in home design. She has been a regular contributor of articles to leading New Zealand home magazines, including You Home & Garden, Home New Zealand, and NZ House and Garden. Catherine is very concerned about the growing unaffordability of housing in New Zealand's larger cities. With her belief in consuming the finite resources of Planet Earth responsibly, she sees the harnessing of architectural design principles to build smaller and smarter houses as an obvious step in the right direction.
