Oriented toward family life and entertaining, this expansion to an existing home is designed as several pavilions set in a lush tropical landscape on a promontory overlooking a large coastal preservation area below. The structures feature locally harvested ohia wood and lava stone to anchor the buildings to the site and the broader landscape while referencing traditional island building.

The lava base anchors two private guest pavilions to the site, while the roof planes appear to float in the sky. Broad overhangs protect the interior from the sun, while sliding window walls open to unite inside and outside and cool the house with natural breezes. The gathering pavilion sits between the main house and the guest pavilions with a privately framed view looking out over lava fields to the Pacific Ocean and mountains.
