City Transformations, Auckland Council
Resilio was engaged by Morphum Environmental Ltd (Morphum) to produce a landscape concept and detailed design for the restoration of an 830m section of Rawiri Stream located in Hobsonville. The Rawiri Stream project aims to maximise the ecological value of the stream and provide landscape amenity and access for the local community through integration with a recreational trail. Resilio developed a landscape strategy which proposes a range of nodes and thresholds along the stream, which respond to the varying landscape characters and ecological niches. Resilio is helping to identify engineered, ecological and landscape enhancement opportunities, as well as celebrate the proposed engineering interventions and employ re-use to provide seating, signage and wayfinding elements derived from items on site to be demolished (culverts) or vegetation to be cleared (Macrocarpa timber). In addition the expertise of the Resilio team was employed to aid in establishing an appropriate ecological planting strategy for the 40m wide riparian corridor.
