Pehiāweri Marae Papakāinga

The design component of this project has culminated in the development of a 10 year masterplan for Pehiāweri Marae, and the design of an 8 unit + communal facilities papakāinga. A number of issues and opportunities have emerged through the development of the masterplan, including the potential reorientation of the wharehui, and siting of future planned projects, including a kohanga reo, playgrounds, and a whare pora. The papakāinga development includes a mix of 1, 2 and 4 bedroom units arranged in clusters of 2-3 dwellings, which have been designed for flexibility and with the ability to be configured as intergenerational whānau homes, or separate dwellings as needs change over time. The papakāinga also includes additional communal facilities that will support interdependence and community resilience whilst retaining a balance between private, shared and communal spaces.
