This design manual for Auckland Council provides a Māori housing values design matrix.

The aim is to develop homes that allow Māori to flourish as Māori, which is informed by a number of suppositions about Māori living: underpinned by core Māori values; founded on common focus and/or kinship; human-centred (inclusive, accessible, intergenerational, safe, scaled); enables communal living in a contemporary Māori context; promotes hauora through design which values and enables Māori cultural practices to take place; recognises and integrates with natural and human systems; acknowledges mana atua, mana whenua and mana tangata; provides shelter, security and a place to stand and call home; and allows for the expression of rangatiratanga. The matrix itself has five columns – the first outlines a Māori value, the second describes the value, the third outlines design principles that align with that value, the fourth design objectives that meet that value, and the fifth built outcomes. The values listed, which are a reconfigured list of the suppositions about Māori living, are whanaungatanga, ira tangata/mauri tangata, kotahitanga, manaakitanga, whakatipuoranga, te taiao/te takiwa, rangatiratanga.
