Vulcan Panelling TG9 135×10

The Remuera House is a renovation of an old circa 1960’s brick house.


Where the original house lacked continuity and flow, the new raking ceiling was designed to connect the interior and exterior, at the same time maximizing the spectacular clifftop views.
Abodo’s Vulcan TG9 Panelling was chosen for its natural grain appearance combined with the high stability and natural durability, allowing it to perform well in an exterior application.

BDG Architects were looking for a natural timber ceiling lining that could continue to the exterior soffit.

The Roscommon House is designed and built to last many generations, and as such needed conviction in the material selection, both from a structural and moral standpoint.

The selection of long-lasting, low maintenance materials

Timber in the project was sourced from certified plantations. Approximately 40% of the timber in the project was Vulcan scotia or boards and is produced from FSC® Certified Forests.

The Roscommon House is constructed primarily from concrete, with a large amount continuing from the outside-in and featuring in the house’s interior design.

Despite appearing as a concrete building from the outside, the interiors are remarkably warm, a result achieved through the extensive use of timber.

This project is a demonstration of how versatile timber is in the different forms it has been used.

The textures and colours can be paired with opposing materials (in this case; concrete, brass, and stone), to produce a much richer environment and harmony through the intricacy of detail.
