Ōtāhuhu Station, Auckland has been featured as a Māori design case study on Auckland Council’s Auckland Design Manual. This was launched in time for Matariki alongside a video showcasing mana whenua engagement in the design process.
The Māori design case studies focus on projects that “demonstrate the distinctive outcomes that can result from a Māori design process and how Māori can influence and, in some cases, lead design”.
A free resource created by Auckland Council, the Auckland Design Manual (ADM) provides examples of best practice process, project guidance and inspiration to designers and developers working in the Super City.
Ōtāhuhu Station was selected, as the project had a deep level of Mana Whenua engagement and has utilised Māori design principles to connect to the environment, culture and heritage of the area.
