The design of this home is contemporary in character, clean and understated. Exterior materials — including coral stone, integral colored plaster, and naturally finished western red cedar — give the house a quiet, reserved feel. The careful placement of individual hales and gardens on the double lot creates a sense of place within the existing lava flow.
