Discover Kōkōwai – our new neighbourhood
An exciting future is growing together
Ngāi Tahu Property’s latest neighbourhood, Kōkōwai, follows the success of the Uku and Kerewhenua neighbourhoods at Kerepeti, Hobsonville Point. Named after the clays found around Onekiritia-Hobsonville Point, Kerepeti is fast becoming an established and vibrant community.
Kōkōwai, like the previous neighbourhoods within Kerepeti, is also named after clay. Kōkōwai is an ochre clay considered sacred for its blood red colour symbolizing humanity’s connections with Papatūānuku, the earth mother, and the whenua-land. Kōkōwai was used extensively throughout Māori history. It was used to decorate carvings around whare-homes, on waka and to honour tipuna-ancestors.
A new community is growing together
Creativity and connection between the people and the land they inhabit have been the inspiration for how we will build the homes at Kōkōwai.
The first Kōkōwai stage is a series of architecturally designed, three-level walk-up apartments built around a welcoming landscaped courtyard. The courtyard garden or kāpunipuni creates a relaxing space to connect with the whenua and community. It provides a safe place for children to play and grownups to enjoy. The building design features a simple gable roof and central front door – familiar elements which represent home, whānau, tradition and safety.
These traditional aspects are combined with modern interior design and energy efficient technology. Designed to maximise natural light, the Kōkōwai apartments also have private ground-floor patios or upper floor balconies with views around Hobsonville Point. Intertwining history and modern architecture, these Kōkōwai homes are a new concept for Hobsonville Point.
It’s where your whānau can grow, and help shape a new community for now and for future generations: Mō tātou, ā, mō kā uri ā muri ake nei
