Project Statement

One of the main design criteria for this house was to maximize outdoor living. To help accomplish this, we kept the Lanai and pool on the floor plans at all times, to ensure that all would be designed as one.


The main living spaces are all on one level, and the Great Room opens to the Lana and pool with a 30’sliding pocketing door, so that when open, any distinction between indoor and outdoor is erased. Similarly, the Master Bedroom has two walls that completely disappear into pockets, so you feel as if you can jump right from bed into the pool.


Built into the hallway wall, on the exterior, is a large BBQ area, with an Outdoor Dining Area just beyond.


The Master Bedroom and Guest Suite both have exterior showers, and both of the secondary bedrooms below have large sliding doors that open up to a landscaped pathway and yard. From there you are on a lava stone meandering pathway that leads you to a meditation area with a bench where you can either continue to the copper-bamboo gate at the street , or go up some exterior stairs that wrap around the infinity edge pool and to the upper lanai.
The structure is comprised of slab-on-grade with 2x6 wood framing, stucco exterior and concrete roof tile. The narrow T-shaped floor plan, with it’s large openings allows the trades to flow freely, minimizing the need for AC. The flooring is travertine, the raised ceilings have sapili T&G, and all materials are of earthtones that compliment each other as well as the natural surroundings. Most of the furniture was custom made, selected by Pat and interior designer Mhel Ramos-Vieth ,whose design philosophy is that in every space, there should be at least one piece that is the “star” piece that catches your eye.
