ANOTHER WIN! This Time Cardrona Cabin Takes Home the Retail Award

Another win for Cardrona - this time in the Retail category, at the 2020 Interior Awards!

Abodo’s showcase Cardrona Cabin has been carefully crafted to demonstrate what can be achieved when we think differently.

The interior of the cabin 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.

It was great to celebrate the win with the team last night. And as always we acknowledge the fantastic teams behind the design and build - Assembly Architects and Dunlop Builders - Wanaka.

Here’s what the judges had to say:

“This year’s retail category was notable for building supply retailers using their showrooms not just as places to display their wares, but as living proof of what their products are capable of.

Within this trend, the Abodo showroom was a laudable example. It combines typologies – residential and retail – to challenge the showroom model. Located in a challenging alpine climate, the building itself is a tour de force of its products’ capabilities.

The simplicity of the design, both inside and out, belies the devoted attention to detail and construction by all. The life-cycle of the project was considered and a reuse solution was built into the structure.

This showroom received unanimous positive votes, thanks to its design, methodology, creativity and sustainability intent.”
