In this episode, hear from architects Stevens and Lawson, as well as members of Ngāti Whātua, as they explain their design objectives for the development of Kāinga Tuatahi on Kupe Street in Ōrākei.

Architects Nicolas Stevens and Gary Lawson elaborate on the distinctive idea of designing community. This includes allowing for more parkland, play-space, vegetable gardens, and thoughtful planning so that the principles of unity, environmental well-being, and sustainability are pervasive throughout.

We also hear from future home owners Te Aroha Morehu and Rewa and Dave Harriman, as they describe their hopes and dreams for this development.
