The Cardrona Cabin embodies our motto: Carefully Crafted Timber - showcasing what can be achieved when we think differently.
No longer can we use slow grown, imported timbers to build homes and structures in these climate conscious times.
Abodo timbers are sourced from rapidly renewable New Zealand plantations that help to mitigate climate change by absorbing vast amounts of carbon.
Here’s what the judges had to say:
“Elegantly conceived and gorgeously crafted, this building showcasing Abodo thermally treated timber products displays care and attention to detail in every aspect of construction and finish. Enviable environmental, structural and thermal performance credentials stand alongside the classic beauty of this project."
"Here, architectural form is reduced to its purest essence – at once aligning with solidly founded tradition and yet the project transcends to appear vigorously progressive, released even from the ground.”
We applaud the winners of this year’s Timber Design Awards, many of which made use of Abodo timbers.
To help save time and money for builders, alongside reducing timber wastage, a range of selected set lengths are now available to order.
Alison brings a wealth of experience to Abodo with over 30 years spanning architecture, building, and joinery.
