The Situation

In the middle of the Cardrona Valley sits the newly constructed ABODO cabin. Standing as a testament to the strength and durability of ABODO’s thermally modified timber. The structure was purpose built to showcase New Zealand’s timber offerings and provide a real-life example of how well it can perform in one of the harshest environments in the country.

Designed by Justin Wright at Assembly Architects the unique building was created as a showroom for ABODO’s products. With elements paying homage to the classic shepherd's huts of the South Island and certain parts taking inspiration from Scandinavian architecture, the intention was to create a space that was cohesive with the external surroundings and was constructed with a level of detail and craftsmanship.
