Admonter Oak Lapis in the Tent House Project

In the innovative Tent House by Strachan Group Architects, Vienna Woods’ Admonter Oak Lapis flooring stands out for its unique character. This striking project, nestled among sand-dunes near Ocean Beach in Tairua, features the distinctive smoked oak, highlighting the home’s natural integration with its surroundings.

Integration with Design

Admonter Oak Lapis is a smoked oak, which is incredibly rare in New Zealand.  It brings a sense of depth and complexity to the Tent House’s design. The smoking process, which involves enveloping the oak timber in smoke for days, results in a rich, nuanced colour palette and a subtle smokiness. This flooring choice enhances the tent-like architecture, adding an organic, layered texture to the living areas.


The utilisation of Vienna Woods’ Admonter Oak Lapis underscores the company’s dedication to unique, high-quality, and sustainable flooring. Its unusual smoked effect and deep, intricate colours resonate with the Tent House’s ecological focus, perfectly aligning with the home’s striking design and environmental ethos.

Special acknowledgement to the incredible work on this project from Strachan Group Architects, who produced an award-winning home.
