A philosophy for living that builds on the past. The concept for our site at Three Kings is founded on respect for Te Tatua-a-Riukiuta / Big King as a spiritual and physical landmark. Native plantings, a new network of pathways and sightlines to Te Tatua-a-Riukiuta / Big King will restore its place in the city.
Urban design has been carefully considered to incorporate multiple vistas of Te Tatua-a-Riukiuta / Big King.
Street level views and improved access will restore Te Tatua-a-Riukiuta / Big King’s position as a key feature of Auckland, and by doing so give the site a strong sense of location and connection with the wider city.
Designated viewing areas will let residents greet the morning or usher out the evening with views to Maungakiekie (One Tree Hill) to the east and Maungawhau (Mt Eden) to the north.
Regenerated native bush will extend Big King’s footprint for greater connection between neighbourhood and nature.
Enhanced pathways will be created to open up Big King for recreational access.
Key sightlines to Big King as well as to neighbouring volcanic cones will be preserved.
