Once you reside in a spot like Hawaii, indoor-outdoor residing takes on an entire new which means. In a nod to unfastened clusters of conventional Hawaiian villages, the Makani’ Eka Home from Walker Warner Architects on Hawaii’s Massive Island contains 4 constructions that circulation round a courtyard, walkways, and patios, making certain residents have loads of excuses to enterprise outdoor.
The agency, which collaborated with Philpotts Interiors and David Y. Tamura Associates for inside design and panorama structure, respectively, needed to modernize Hawaii’s conventional hale shelters—timber houses which are coated by thatched roofs stretching all the best way to the bottom.
“The composition of canted metal columns, steep-pitched roofs, and rhomboidal window and door openings characterize a up to date interpretation of early Hawaiian shelters,” stated Greg Warner, a co-founder of the agency and the lead architect for the challenge. Warner grew up in Hawaii and is influenced by each indigenous Hawaiian structure and preeminent Hawaiian modernist Vladimir Ossipoff.
The deconstructed structure is split into 4 areas: a recreation room and storage, visitor suite, master suite, and communal residing areas. The entire constructions are constructed from pink cedar and have polished concrete flooring, asymmetrical pitched ceilings, and extensive expanses of window. They really feel nearly like pavilions, which is strictly what you’d need from a house in paradise.
