An architectural pool forms the axis for arranging seven separate modern tropical pavilions, or hales, totaling 6,700 square feet. The hales link through outdoor gardens and spaces that act as corridors, creating a village ambiance. These elegant transitional spaces harmoniously connect the hale structures, tropical plantings, large-scale stone exterior elements, and the site’s coastal views.
Minimalist finishes reinforce the clean lines. Warm woods complement cool sand-grained plaster and brushed travertine floors. Easily maintained finishes and floors welcome bare feet and reinforce the aloha factor. The design incorporates cultural cues from ancient Polynesian culture, referencing the homeowners’ years of living in Tahiti. The stacked stone water feature at the entry and monoliths alongside outdoor pavilions echo ancient Polynesian cultures.
