Karekare Surf Club - 106 Architects | ArchiPro

Karekare Surf Club

The journey for the Karekare Surf Lifesaving Club dates back to 2002 when the idea was seeded to build a clubhouse that would be more accessible to a broader range of users while respecting the environmental surroundings and required emergency services access.

Located on the edge of the Karekare Stream in the Waitakere Ranges, the Karekare Surf Lifesaving Club plays a pivotal role in the community spirit, enticing locals and visitors to enjoy the rugged coast of New Zealand.

106 Architects have been collaborating with surf club members and project managers MPM Projects since 2007. Based on the Hillery Priest Architecture initial concept, we are about to commence construction and deliver the project for the community.


  • Huge community funding drive to achieve the funds needed to commence the build.
  • Epic community journey and project commitment since 2002.
  • Iconic coastal and natural landmark for Aucklanders.
  • The design includes a multi-faceted de-facto centre for the entire local community to enjoy.
  • Restrictive construction methodologies employed to enable build.
