The Rotorua Lakefront master plan represents the cumulative results of a successful collaboration between landscape architects, architects, ecologists, economists and local council based expertise. The plan proposes a clear strategy for the procurement of a world class waterfront development at the northern end of the city centre within the lakefront reserve.
The plan provides an innovative approach to the integration of economic, ecological + community needs with spaces designed to accommodate and interweave these requirements. A mixture of flexible and activity-specific spaces and elements are bound together by a common language of materials and detailing within a framework of thematic strands that overlay the site.
