Longbush Ecosanctuary Goes Chemical Free

There will be no rehab required for the new Longbush Ecosanctuary Welcome Centre. It will be clad in chemical free Heart Douglas fir – donated by Abodo Wood.

Sarosh Mulla, a PhD student in Architecture at the University of Auckland and a brilliant, award-winning young designer, is designing a Welcome Shelter / Workers’ Shed for Longbush – a registered charity.

Sarosh has designed a beautiful, yet practical structure which will be clad in Abodo Heart Douglas fir, and “decked out” in Abodo's Sand Decking.

Long­bush Eco­sanc­tu­ary is located just eleven kilo­me­tres north of Gis­borne. Described as an ‘Ark’ for rare and endan­gered native species of plants and ani­mals, the Eco­sanc­tu­ary is set in a beau­ti­ful inland val­ley, carved out of the hills by the Waimata River which flows into the heart of Gis­borne City.
