Welcome to Tuatahi
Auckland living at its easiest
All communities must have a heart — a core, a centre, a hub — and that’s exactly what you’ll find at Tuatahi.
Embraced by Tuatahi’s three buildings, a lush lawn and landscaped garden spills from the residents’ lounge. An azure pool beckons. It’s a short stroll from the residents’ lounge and then there’s something else upstairs, something special, something uniquely Ockham: a residents’ library that exudes zen, thought and quiet contemplation.
Step through the striking bronze and wood waharoa (entranceways) into Tautahi and you immediately feel you’re at home. As with all our buildings there’s a sense of permanence —Tuatahi is built to last, the intricate brick detailing another Ockham signature. Every apartment has its own balcony with loads of light; understated quality is evident in every room, every fixture.
Then there’s the Mt Albert location which is in the middle of the action, yet somehow apart. Let’s give you a very quick tour. Tucked in behind Tuatahi is the Waterview Shared Path, a link that’ll take you right into town — or way out West. Directly across the road, you’ll find Alan Wood Reserve, the first in a series of connected parks that meander all the way to Mt Roskill. Two train stations are an easy walk away. And you realise exactly why influential website The Spinoff decided Mt Albert was the "the best suburb in Auckland".
This is the life: this is Auckland as it could be.
Tuatahi means ‘The First’ — the first in what we hoped would be an ongoing collaboration with the Marutūāhu Iwi. Mana whenua of Tāmaki Makaurau, the Marutūāhu Iwi arrived with great waka and housed their people here for centuries. Our partnership together is faithful to that tradition as we build homes for Aucklanders which honour our city’s striking landscapes and connect us to the whenua — and to each other.
For Tuatahi, our architects spent a great deal of time inside Hotunui. Easily the most visited wharenui in the land, Hotunui was loaned to the people of Tāmaki Makaurau by Ngāti Maru and the other Marutūāhu Iwi. It has lived within Auckland War memorial Museum since 1928: Tuatahi seeks its inspiration from this magnificent meeting house.
Expertly designed by Ockham Residential’s in-house lead architect Tania Wong, Tuatahi honours its influence — and recognises our Marutūāhu partners. The pitched roof forms echo those of the marae. And Tuatahi’s exterior brickwork grabs the eye at once, the intricate brick detailing a striking but also subtle homage to the tukutuku panels that adorn the interior of Hotunui.
