Working in collaboration, Ar. Lindsay Mackie of Archimedia and artists Bernard Makoare, Martin Leung- Wai and Petelo Esekielu, developed a concept for the Te Oro facility that envisioned the building being as a grove of trees under which communities gathered and sheltered to commune, share knowledge and be culturally and creatively productive. From this came Te Oro’s signature roof form, a floating geometrised ‘leaf canopy’ atop a series of ‘timber trunks’.

Historically the grove of trees or ‘uru’ is a response to the remnant karaka uru on nearby Taurere - Mt Taylor, and an important part of local story telling. The 1485m 2 building has a strong environmental agenda, with the roof surface covered in 256 PV panels, which make Te Oro “Net Zero Energy”.
