The design of the Kāinga Hou examples have been guided by seven Māori housing values and associated design principles and objectives.
These values, principles and objectives were developed with subject matter experts and kaumatua and combined to form a Māori Housing Values Matrix.
The matrix provides a tool for interpreting the Māori housing values and delivering the values through tangible design outcomes.
Applied in reverse, the matrix can be used as a tool for assessing how well a proposed design realises and delivers on each of the Māori housing values.
