60+ people heard Rob Allen Professor of Social History at AUT speak at the Remuera Library on Friday 12th October 2018 on the Arts and Crafts Movement which originated in England with William Morris, architects Philip Webb, Edwin Lutyens, Charles Voysey and Baillie Scott. There were many Remuera houses, including and especially Coolangatta, which were influenced by the Arts and Crafts Movement in their design in the early 20th century, with architects Gerald Jones, Roy Binney, and Noel Bamford. Remuera houses covered were the Wrigley House (Ladies Mile), Spicer House (Baytree Cottage, Mainston Road), Hanna House (Arney Road), Fairley / Awatea (Bassett Road) and the Hellaby House which was at 519 Remuera Rd and at Karaka, Franklin since 2003.
