Betts St Luxury Apartments - Nelson, New Zealand
Abodo’s eco-timber screening provides a stylish look, along with privacy and shade in New Zealand’s sunshine capital
The luxury Betts Apartments are designed to address the street edge - using a variety of materials including timber screens and recessed balconies to break down the visual scale.
These generously proportioned apartments have all been custom designed by Arthouse Architects to meet the specific requirements of owners - and in most cases the apartments run right through from north to south or east to west, optimising sun, light, natural ventilation and views.
Low maintenance exterior cladding is juxtaposed with timber lined balconies and Vulcan eco-timber screening (in Protector - Teak), providing privacy on the south facing apartments, and both sun and privacy control for those west facing.
Abodo’s Vulcan timber is the ideal choice in timber screening. It’s thermally modified (a chemical-free treatment using heat and steam) which means it has enhanced stability and durability.
It also holds dark colours for longer, due to low moisture content in the timber. Perfect for the Nelson climate, which is known to have the highest number of sunshine hours in New Zealand.
