Matakana Village

The spectacular transformation of Matakana from a small rural service town to an iconic destination owes greatly to recent design efforts as it does to its location close to beaches and vineyards. Garth Falconer has been closely involved in the development of the overall site layout, the public spaces, streets and farmers market in a comprehensive development. Sustainability measures have been quietly integrated in the development from excavation of contaminated soil, drainage plan using porous surfacing and filter strips, reuse of timber and brick paving, and native riverbank plantings. Reset was also engaged to extend the adjoining streetscape design for Rodney District Council along Matakana Valley Road; upgrading pedestrian walkways, lighting, planting, seating and parking.
