Te Kura Whare
Encouraging pride, unity and presence, Te Kura Whare mirrors Tūhoe values and Te Mana Motuhake o Tūhoe in a way that maintains the truth of our past, our present and our future. Te Kura Whare brings to life the idea that we must restore the spaces that we live in. We must live within our means. Water use; materials; energy generation and consumption, Te Kura Whare raises the bar beyond environment friendly. Striking a chord nationally and worldwide Te Kura Whare has set established benchmark for future homes, Tribal offices, Marae, schools, kōhanga reo and all buildings throughout the Tūhoe rohe.
Te Kura Whare, the crowd favourite at the New Zealand Property Council Awards 2014, received the Best in Category for the Special Purpose Property Award and the Green Building Property Award.
