Assembly Architects has designed The Cardrona Cabin as a showcase for Abodo. Set in the heart of Cardrona Valley in New Zealand’s South Island, the cabin was completed in 2020.
Set 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.
