Ragatahi Rangatiratanga | Youth Justice Residence
A rangatahi residence in the community. Designed to encourage each rangatahi who comes to stay to engage with their own Rangatiratanga/self determination. Spatial and atmospheric flexibility has been emphasised, while also maintaining a safe and secure home. The framing of a central courtyard acts as both a boundary and creates a sense of play between the interior and exterior. Each interior space has a unique relationship with this central communal space and the outside, enabling rangatahi to rehabilitate without a feeling of imprisonment, but rather a punanga/refuge in the community.
