Project Statement

Walking through the exterior, visitors can see touches of the two international styles converging into one within this house. The clients originally brought their idea board to the architect, showing him typical continental style homes popular in California. They envisioned a completely insular space with an overgrown forest and completely enclosed walls. Their intention was to have a retreat from the outside world.


The architect asked them to provide him with the opportunity to learn about this style in depth and asked for their willingness to be educated about the tropical sense of place that Hawaii was known for. The clients were more than happy to proceed with this education process as both of them went to college in the mainland and were unaware of the trends and styles that were prevalent in Hawaii.


The final design resulted in a marriage of the principles of continental style design with a Hawaii sense of place – creating a hotel resort experience with continental-style aesthetics.
