Boathouse Bay embraces the true meaning of ‘beachside’. No busy roads to cross, just follow the path across the sand and you’re standing on the beach. Designed by award-winning architect Ken Crosson to celebrate New Zealand seaside living at its best, 33 individually designed homes are threaded through a private beachside enclave.  The development offers two and three bedroom designs with captivating sea views, with options of absolute beachfront to captivate the kiwi dream.

Kōtuitui is a new neighbourhood of architecturally designed, two and three bedroom terrace homes in downtown Manukau City.  Kōtuitui has been masterplanned to be a place that people want to live. With landscaped private grounds that extend out to the streetscape and pocket park, places for children to play as well as ample parking for residents and visitors. Careful consideration has been given to the roading to create a quiet, safe and peaceful community for residents and their visitors to enjoy.

Te Māra

Te Māra (the garden), a collection of inspiring architectural homes coming to Mt Roskill, designed to nurture life and grow happiness. Mount Roskill has a long history of bringing communities together, once a māra kai (food garden), the warm tradition of building and fostering close knit neighbourhoods will grow and strengthen under the new Roskill South project. Led by Kāinga Ora and one of the biggest regeneration projects within Tāmaki Makaurau it will provide quality homes, upgraded roading, pedestrian links, parkland and public transport to support a growing urban-fringe community.



Te Ākitai Waiohua, in conjunction with Avant Group, commissioned Isthmus early in 2018 to develop a masterplan for the site in the Wiri neighbourhood of Manukau, Auckland. The site, by virtue of its location and extent, represents an unparalleled opportunity to define the future of a healthy and thriving community.  The masterplan for Wirihana itself has been designed to act as a catalyst not only for the wider neighbourhood of Wiri, but also for the city of Manukau itself. The Masterplan principles set the bar high; this is an opportunity to demonstrate a new way of living communally, intimately connected to place. The interplay of the street network with linear parks, green spaces, wetlands, plazas, homes and retail activity are all “bound” together through a series of placemaking gestures, fostering community and wellbeing for its residents and visitors alike.
