Coastal Wainui Home - Gisborne, New Zealand
Looking out to the famous Wainui surf beach, this eye-catching coastal home features Vulcan Cladding inside and out
Designed by Kingsbeer Architecture and crafted by owner/builder Mike Robinson, Abodo’s thermally modified Vulcan Cladding was chosen for both the exterior cladding and interior walls of this beach-side home.
Fortified with thermal modification, Vulcan Cladding is capable of handling harsh coastal conditions without warping or twisting, while also safe for use inside the home where people are naturally drawn to touch and interact with the warmth of timber elements.
Random width Vulcan Cladding creates a point of interest, finished in light straw tones. Mike chose to face fix the timber cladding with nails in a classic look.
The same Straw finish was used inside the home, adding a natural light touch. With plentiful windows throughout, the cladding is slowly lightening over time.
The carefully crafted stairwell shows Mike’s commitment to the details, with immaculate finishing.
