After 100 years managed by the Salvation Army as an alcohol rehabilitation centre, Rotoroa Island in the Hauraki Gulf was re-opened to the public thanks to generous philanthropists who leased the island for the next 100 years. From 2006 to 2011 the island has been re-stored as a public arts and heritage estate for all to enjoy.

Kathrin was commissioned to capture several milestones of the activities related to this including the installation of Chris Booth’s sculpture. A peek is presented above. Photographs of these sessions contributed in magazines like URBIS, Architecture Now and Good magazine.
