Delivering legacy infrastructure for the city - without taking away from the Waterview community

Waterview Connection

Waterview Connection was the largest infrastructure project the country had ever undertaken and was essential to improving Auckland’s strained transport grid. However, the new transit corridor was to pass through some of Auckland’s most densely populated neighbourhoods, having a massive community impact. The design challenge was to finding ways to deliver for the city without taking away from the community.
Warren and Mahoney made the community the client. They didn’t just design a motorway, they designed something that would knit our community back together.

Waterview Connection powerfully redefines what infrastructure can be, with the application of thoughtful architecture and public design principles.
