New Build, with Ohana Suite
Hale Kilo I’a, House of the Fish Spotter, is a modern beach vacation home that takes its cues in traditional Hawaiian architecture. The house is a new residential construction composed of two individual structures, one with a butterfly roof and the other a shed roof, designed to harness the sun and the trade winds and maximize the connection to the outdoor areas. The consistent use of simple materials throughout the home, such as board-and-batten siding, polished concrete floors and large white interior volumes, unifies the design and lends to a clear overall experience. With high sloping ceilings and large openings that blend the the interior and exterior, Hale Kilo I’a is a unique and dynamic architectural space, that captures the essence of living in Hawaii.
Bold colors, patterns and forms, in the architecture and furniture, create a unique series of spaces that are both inviting and warm. By separating the house into two smaller houses, each with a covered lanai but no covered connection, the houses becomes a playful assemblage of indoor and outdoor spaces with an expansive feel. Other notable features of this house include ply-bamboo cabinets, one single piece tempered glass kitchen backsplash, colorful glass tiles in the bathrooms and metal roofing.
