North Kona Coast Residence

Hawaii

Inspired by the traditional Hawaiian roof forms popularized by C.W. Dickey in the mid-20th century, the design of this home advances the home as a “village” into a contemporary and appropriate expression for its Hawaiian setting.

The priority of program for this couple was to have the design support the lifestyle of the entire family living together in the main gathering areas. With the goal of living outside as much as possible, equal emphasis has been given to the outdoor living pavilion as with the interior gathering area.  Exterior materials consist of a standing seam zinc roofing, integral color cement plaster with basalt stone, and bronze aluminum doors and windows.  The interior finishes utilize natural materials such as limestone floors, granite counters, and marble, wood and plaster walls. Living in the home is about being outdoors, or feeling the presence of the outdoors at all times.
