“Ferry Road Waterfront, is Taupo's latest public realm space.”

Ferry Road Waterfront, is Taupo's latest public realm space built on an existing carpark and is part of a new wayfinder initiative in Taupo, CliP is about communication through art and design and will give the community a voice through its interchangeable and constantly updated panels.


Urbanlogic were appointed by Taupo District Council to develop the masterplan for the Taupo's waterfront edge and to create an new vibrant flexible space, the masterplan showed  that the design not only showcases how flexible spaces can be adapted, but is a highly sculptural landscape as a focus and unifying many different art elements.

First phase of Ferry Road Waterfront  was constructed in December 2011 which combined Taupo's CliP (wayfinder) and the new crossing sculpture, by Robbie Grahame. Urbanlogic was also the detail designers for the space and also the crossing sculpture.
