Taurarua Judges Bay

Re-discovering an inner city jewel

This small eastern headland bay is the entry to Auckland’s inner harbour, a largely bypassed and unmodified remnant that still possesses tangible heritage from both Maori and early European phases of Auckland City’s development.

Working with Auckland Council and mana whenua, Reset Urban Design led the multi-disciplinary design team to develop plans and supervise the works that have created links with the parks network, minimal disturbance to the existing contours, used low impact stormwater treatment to cleanse the reveal road runoff, whilst re-arranging parking and controlling vehicle access.
