Temple View - Construkt Architects Ltd | ArchiPro NZ

Masterplanning project aimed at revitalizing an iconic Waikato settlement of Temple View. The project presents a unique opportunity for brownfield regeneration to grow its existing community by attracting a diverse mix of new residents, and to reinvigorate the ecclesiastical, cultural and social aspects of the area.

Central to the revitalisation project is the desire to create a strong sense of place and preserve Temple View’s distinct 1950’s modernist character. LDS engaged Construkt to produce a comprehensive masterplan to support this vision and deftly guide the project from concept to consent. It includes retail and residential precincts, five church related buildings, various public open spaces and a mixture of housing typologies to suit a wide demographic.

To retain Temple View’s distinct look and feel, and ensure easy navigation, views and landmarks have been incorporated into the design and have fundamentally influenced the settlement’s urban structure. The design team has used complementary architectural styles, colour palettes and visual links to landmark buildings to further promote this integration.

The master plan envisions the long term development of the site in a manner that is economically, environmentally, socially and culturally sustainable.
