  • Our design/build model produced a 20% saving on the project
  • Client confidence that we could complete installation over a tight schedule, in time for the new school year
  • How to combine sustainability and fun in one design
  • The importance of utilizing school grounds as a site for child development

The old grounds did not function cohesively. By analysing the way the kids used their outdoor space we were able to design a landscape with transitional connections between areas.

The new design also integrates well with the rest of the school grounds which are a verdant collection of nooks, crannies, fields and play spaces. The new outdoor space at Mauku School has become part of the fabric of learning and the kids love it.



“We chose Natural Habitats because we were confident with their initial plan, manner and their grasp of our requirements and deadlines.”
