Hugged by the Karangahake forests and New Zealand's Kaimai Ranges, this farmland home bravely holds its own on the hilltop. Masterfully designed by MAKE Architects, whose brief was to design a new house for their client’s existing farmland, to a tight budget and at no larger than 100m2.

Abodo’s Tundra timber cladding was chosen for the exterior to further meet the sustainability eco-brief. Tundra Cladding is made from douglas fir, sustainably grown in New Zealand from FSC® certified plantations.

Finished in Sioo:x natural wood coating, Tundra Cladding has a rustic look which completes the tramper’s hut brief and integrates beautifully into the natural surrounds. Sioo:x is a 100% natural wood treatment, which silvers off to an attractive, low maintenance grey over time.
