Gardens and Lounges


Gardens & Lounges

Conveniently nestled against the green belt above Newtown, Te Hopai benefits from all day sun, views and leafy outlooks.

Rooms & intimate sitting areas look out over sunny garden courtyards or views of the trees and suburb.

Large public lounges are light and airy, with colourful touches and different characters. These warm spaces are used for daily activities, dining and socialising.

Intimacy And Companionship

Our warm inviting spaces make every effort to provide a home-like environment for our Residents in a relaxed friendly secure atmosphere.

There are spaces for quiet contemplation, intimate family catch-ups or large group activities.

Vital And Engaging

Te Hopai is a vibrant living community where daily activities in lounges & gardens create energy and stimulation.

Music, art, laughter, brain teasers, gardening and cooking - just a few of the ways we keep residents engaged with their lives.

"Buildings are light and imaginatively designed, with a number of lounges of various sizes in which residents, friends and family members can meet."

John Jensen

"The gardens have been great inspiration for our painting classes, and now the resulting art work brightens our walls inside as well"

"I'm never sure who has more fun - the dogs or people.When I started bringing dogs from the SPCA they told me Te Hopai was in a league of its own - they were right!"


"I have been helping people tell their life stories. People are so interesting and their lives so unpredictable. I interview, record and transcribe each person’s words and then write up their accounts."
