We are proud to have an exciting collaboration working with the team at PROJECT SUNRISE.

Located in the beautiful but remote archipelago of Ma’uke in the Cook Islands, the team at PROJECT SUNRISE aims to develop a sustainable village community with a vision to achieve super abundance of food, energy and housing through sustainability and innovation - with the first phase of designs for the village’s primary structures underway - such as the Marae/Communal Hall.

A challenging yet important endeavour for the people of the South Pacific, PROJECT SUNRISE looks to harness renewable and low impact systems of development to enrich Pasifika culture, environment and way of life.
