Mangrove Home - Herald Island, New Zealand
On the edge of the mangroves this three bedroom, multi-level home was designed for the eco-conscious homeowner.
Minimising long-term environmental impact was a high priority in this build, which features passive design, a green roof to reduce stormwater run-off, solar panels and high levels of insulation.
In addition, the choice of Abodo’s Vulcan Primed Eco-timber Cladding (in AW62P profile) will further lower the footprint now and into the future. Vulcan timber is FSC® certified and sourced from rapidly renewable sustainable plantations.
The timber is thermally modified which uses heat treatment instead of chemicals, providing a number of benefits for its life on the building - but also means the timber can be returned to the earth at the end of its life, without contributing to lined landfill.
Not only does Vulcan fit the eco-conscious brief, the paint primed finish provides a crisp, clean look for this beautifully designed home.
Abodo’s Sand Decking in Pearl finish complements the natural build and surroundings, with its silky smooth finish Sand Decking is a genuine eco alternative to hardwood decking.
