An urban community closely connected to the transformation of Auckland’s fastest evolving suburb


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.

"It’s important for us that people are proud of where they are living — no matter what project we do" - Ken Crosson

This is Ken Crosson

Ken Crosson studied architecture in Auckland before starting his career in London where he was introduced to terrace living and how well- connected places create exciting opportunities for work and play.

Since then he’s created houses big and small that have won awards both here and around the world. He was a finalist in the World Architecture awards and his designs have twice been listed by World Architecture News as among the Six Best Houses in the World. Last year Ken and his team won Home of the Year too.

Ken designs homes that are unique and carefully built for those that live in them.

Light Mine - Coromandel Peninsula

A timber clad home by the beach on the Coromandel Peninsula – ‘Light Mine’ is a head turning place that references the old underground mines nearby. But unlike actual mine shafts, the shafts on this house are inverted, "mining the sunshine and starlight, extending into the sky as opposed to the earth" says Ken. Light Mine won the HOME Magazine, home of the year in early 2020.
