Hokulia Golf Clubhouse

Hawaii

The South Kona coast at Kealakekua is auspicious for both its history and sense of aloha. As the 1,550 acres of Hokulia stretch along three miles of coast, it’s apparent that the golf course relaxes into the gentle undulating hillsides without disturbing the natural terrain.

As one of the key amenity buildings, the 10,500 sq. ft. Hokulia Golf Clubhouse, provides a social center for the residents of this private development. The architecture of this golf club establishes the character for the other club buildings in the future. Reminiscent of Pacific Rim and Polynesian architecture, the club is organized as series of pavilions casually arranged as a hillside village. Designed to be crafted out of simple and expressive natural materials, with appropriately scaled simple “pavilion” buildings, the architecture will feel natural and in the spirit of the land. Architecture defers to nature in this context.

Sheltered behind the massive and dormant Mauna Loa volcano, Kealakekua is blessed with mostly gentle breezes and the pavilions are designed as open air structures. The elemental quality of simple shelter supported on natural tree trunk columns of the local Ohia tree evokes the tropical island architecture.

The nine pavilions set within a three acre tropical garden, and oriented to the ocean and coastline views will deliver the site, landscape and architecture as one experience to the member.
