An external material palette of stone and Abodo modified timber weatherboards were carefully chosen to help this new building merge with its older neighbours.

Aitken House Vulcan Cladding Abodo Wood

Sections of the upper level cantilever over the ground floor, providing additional floorspace upstairs. An inset balcony reduces the visual mass of the building when seen from the nearby public green space, while also providing an attractive view of the park. 

Abodo Vulcan Cladding, laid both horizontally with WB10 180x20 weatherboards, and vertically with WB12 mixed profiles, breaks up the volume of the upper storey, while also softening the aesthetics of the building.  

Finished with an Ebony stain, Abodo Vulcan is also used for louvred shading on the upper storey, which hides the contemporary nature of the double height windows in the living area, and for the entry gate. The balcony is clad with vertical Vulcan weatherboards finished in Teak, with the soffit lined in 180x20 WB12 boards, creating a sense of warmth in this inset space. 

Abodo Vulcan timber is thermally modified radiata pine, sourced from FSC® certified, rapidly renewable plantations in New Zealand’s central north island.
