Our intention was to integrate the architecture with the natural environment and the culture specific to the Big Island of Hawaii. Designed to accommodate family and friends while vacationing, the home focuses inward as well as to the outside, creating intimate courtyards while maintaining strong connections to the stunning views. The combination of natural materials enhances an understated and elegant impression of Hawaii. The opportunity to connect mountain and ocean, interior and exterior, architecture and landscape, afforded us great potential for this Kona Coast home.
