The Waterview Court project involved tailored specification support for Kāinga Ora—Homes and Communities—the agency providing public housing for New Zealanders in need.

Across 12,000m2, including surplus land leftover from the Waterview tunnel project, Dulux® worked closely with the client to meet their colour and design ideals. The site is surrounded by a busy arterial route (Great North Road) running along the western boundary, the Oakley Creek Reserve and stream to the east.

The design encompasses 120 dwellings, from two-storey townhouses to five storey apartments, as well a community room and office. Set to a backdrop of buildings and concentrated around a pocket park, it fosters an urban lifestyle while embracing the diverse identities of the community.
