heritage & cultural design

Understanding and knowledge of the past provides for awareness of what lies ahead in the journey through life.

Preservation of what was experienced and collation of the past becomes the story of our combined histories no matter where we are in the world.

Epic sea journeys, by canoe and sailing ship, bought people to our shores. Maori culture, with tribal variance, is foremost amongst the heritage we value. Then European sailors, with their own sets of variance, arrived in time.

The marvelous challenge is to look for artifacts, save what we can, listen, record, preserve, value and display, share and make the past part of the journey we take. Adhere and succeed in gaining a basis for understanding the collective culture we now have. Understanding, must surely play a role in the development of our New Zealand – its people and its places.

Here is a small selection of projects we have been fortunate to be involved in from around the world.
