Omaha House - Rodney, New Zealand

Abodo as Timber Suppliers

Completed in 2018, the Omaha house overlooks the estuary facing west. An awkward shaped site and the desire to connect the occupants with the stunning water surrounds led to a three-formed or winged structure connected with glazed hallways.

Abodo’s Vulcan Cladding with Sioo:x finish gives the humble “board + batten” cladding a longer-lasting and low-maintenance finish and fits in sympathetically with the coastal environment.

Vulcan Cladding is made from thermally modified timber, a process which uses heat and steam rather than chemicals, and results in a highly stable, durable timber.

Sioo:x is a reactive coating, which weathers evenly to a beautiful silver grey after exposure to the elements. This process accelerates the timber’s natural weathering, but still keeps it protected for up to 10 years.

The Sioo:x finish is inspired by nature, and weathers to a beautiful silvery grey which can last up to ten years.
