Titirangi, West Auckland

About Titirangi:

Titirangi is a prosperous residential suburb in the Waitākere Ward of Auckland, New Zealand. Titirangi is situated on the south side of Waitākere Ranges Regional Park, bordered by Glen Eden, Laingholm and Manukau Harbour.

In the Māori language, Titirangi translates to "Fringe of Heaven" – a fitting reflection of the proud celebration of nature and art in the area.

At the 2018 New Zealand census, Titirangi had a population of 7,203 with 2,469 households.

This residential suburb is distinguished by houses nestled along winding bush paths. Many of the houses here are distinctive in their designs, designed in harmony with the surrounding native rainforest.

Culture and Arts

The sculpture on the roundabout of Titirangi Road, Atkinson Road, Kohu Road, Scenic Drive and Huia Rd has been a landmark of Titirangi for many years, although it is a controversial presence. Crafted by student artist-jeweller Lisa Higgins in 1993, it was initially erected with the intention of only being in place for five years, but it remained permanent.

The Lopdell Precinct gives the community an artistic heart, creating art and cultural centre for the area. There are three buildings: the Treasure House, the Lopdell House and Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery. Te Uru's modern building was purpose-built as part of the comprehensive renovation of Lopdell House and opened in 2014.

Education

The nearest state secondary schools are Green Bay High School, Kelston Boys High School and Kelston Girls College.

The Brake House in Titirangi, designed by the late Ron Sang in the 1970s for photographer Brian Brake, is undoubtedly a masterpiece - recognised as one of Aotearoa’s most influential examples of Mid-century modern architecture. Head to our link in bio to read the nzstuff article detailing the process behind its kitchen renovation. Undertaken in 2020 by cheshirearchitects, the re-vamp was centred around the question: How do you modernise such a space yet retain the spirit of the architect’s work? ⁠
