Mauku School

Mauku, Auckland


  • Our design/build model produced a 20% saving on the project

  • Client confidence that we could complete installation over a tight schedule, in time for the new school year

  • How to combine sustainability and fun in one design

  • The importance of utilizing school grounds as a site for child development

The old grounds did not function cohesively. By analysing the way the kids used their outdoor space we were able to design a landscape with transitional connections between areas.

The new design also integrates well with the rest of the school grounds which are a verdant collection of nooks, crannies, fields and play spaces. The new outdoor space at Mauku School has become part of the fabric of learning and the kids love it.
