Designed as a showcase for Abodo, this seemingly simple cabin embodies our motto: Carefully Crafted Timber
Set in the heart of Cardrona Valley, in the harsh alpine climate of New Zealand's South Island, the cabin demonstrates the durability, along with the beauty of Abodo timber products and processes.
Externally, the slatted Vulcan Screening in Sioo:x Finish is designed to age and weather to the grey tones of its rocky environment, while the concrete base is imprinted with the grained texture of timber formwork.
The interior reflects warmth, texture and heart with a crafted carpentry of exposed timber structure, and highly grained timber panelling evocative of sarking in early period cottages in the area.
Abodo timbers are sourced from rapidly renewable New Zealand plantations that help to mitigate climate change by absorbing vast amounts of carbon.
Using state-of-the-art thermal modification and grain orientation technology, we can craft beautiful timbers that stand the test of time, without disadvantaging future generations.
