A place to relax
At the heart of the development is Ūkaipō, a holistic wellbeing sanctuary offering a carefully curated range of traditional and contemporary healing modalities. Ūkaipō means Mother, origin, source of sustenance; to return to one’s real home. The vision for this atea (space) is to return people to their truest sense of self. Its offerings and accompanying surrounds will give the community a place where the best in mental, physical, spiritual, emotional and family wellbeing can be found.
The lower level will be where people can come to bath, enjoy mirmiri or relax in the sauna and steam rooms. This is a place to restore ones energy and heal from the daily challenges.
A place to meet
The ground floor offers a lively mix of spaces designed to attract and connect a wide variety of people. It features open-plan seating areas, a restaurant for locals to meet and eat around long communal tables, a boutique shop with a focus on wellbeing and a concierge desk. A shared courtyard and public laneways act as bump spaces where people can arrange to meet or rely on chance encounters.
