"300 person hikoi telling the stories of Waikanae"

During 2014 Chow:Hill was engaged by Frame Group Limited to work with them alongside Council to develop a 1km beachfront cycle and walkway from Waikanae to Midway Beach. Their vision was to create a high quality, culturally significant, scenic walkway that told stories of navigation and settlement.

The project was a collaborative project including a coastal scientist, ecologist, boardwalk engineer, landscape architects and renowned local artist and cultural adviser, Derek Lardelli. Volunteers involving Aborcare, Rotary, Certified Builders Association (local building firms) provided volunteer labour. Toihoukura students carved the large seats using recycled timber. The main Contractor was Earthwork Solutions with McLeods Concrete.

This project beautifully responds to its natural and cultural context and is truly a community project.
