South Kauai Residence


Gracious livability was the prime objective and the concept for the design of this eight-bedroom home.


Poipu, Kauai, Hawaii




Design Concept


Private Client



Terraced into a South Kauai hillside property overlooking a panoramic ocean horizon, this 8-bedroom home was designed for the gathering areas to reside alongside the pool and gardens so the indoor spaces merge seamlessly with the exterior.

The master bedroom suite and adjacent family suite are located conveniently alongside the living areas at the garden level. Guest accommodations in two-story hales are designed for their own private gardens and ocean views.

The design concept of this tropical home is one of casual and gracious tropical living.  Spaces between buildings are conceived as garden interludes to introduce mystery and surprise as one moves from one part of the home to the other.
