New Zealand’s “Best” Charred Timber Project Finalist in Awards

Abodo’s recent work at the Tuhoe tribe’s Waikaremoana Tribal Office, a finalist at this year’s Best Awards.

The Abodo team – with the Tuhoe assistance used naturally durable Vulcan Cladding to created a charred finish for the timber façade and signage around the new Waikaremoana Welcome Centre.

The charred finish, shimmering with a black “crocodile skin” look was created using traditional Japanese wood charring technique known as Shou Sugi Ban, or Yaki Sugi. Abodo has a proprietary process to create a depth of char, and Vulcan Cladding, a natural durable chemical free timber is the perfect substrate.

Of particular importance to the Tuhoe was the fact that Vulcan timber was harvested from FSC certified forests in Kaingaroa.

Abodo founder Daniel Gudsell, along with Sales Manager Saul Harman spent three days charring with an enthusiastic team of 18 Tuhoe rangers.

“The Tuhoe rangers took real pride in their work, and we achieved a fantastic result despite the challenging on site conditions. We are honoured to receive the award” says Daniel.

The signage was completed beautifully in bronze by the talented team at Law Creative, and complements the deep char perfectly.
