Hapuna Beach, Hawaii, HI
Architecture (including Interior Architecture)
AG-WP Hapuna, LLC
Situated among verdant courtyards and a Great Lawn overlooking Hapuna Beach, The Hapuna Beach Residences at Mauna Kea gently slope from the ocean to the mountains, inspired by the traditional rice paddies of Asia.
Our design philosophy for this project was to continue the pursuit of craftsmanship unique to island architecture while respecting the existing construction materials.
The architecture is conceived as a series of open air tropical walkways connecting to the existing buildings. There is a sense of familiarity to traditional forms, but reinterpreted for this setting. Details have been designed with minimalist sensibilities supporting the architecture and finish materials selected for character and durability.
Organized around internal courtyards and lanais, the residences are designed for indoor/outdoor living with the key element of expansive wall openings. The design optimized the relationship between outdoor and indoor living, bedroom spaces and kitchen. Floor plans range from 700 to over 3,200 square feet.
