Western red cedar, oversized sliding doors, board-formed concrete, operable wood louvers and rope lashing contribute to the home’s laid-back, camp-like feel.
Designed by San Francisco-based practice Walker Warner Architects with interiors by Philpotts Interiors and landscaping by David Y Tamura Associates, the home follows the layout of traditional Hawaiian architecture and is composed of multiple structures.
Upon passing an entry bridge, one enters a massive green compound with six separate buildings.
The main building features an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area that boasts high ceilings and is surrounded by a generous covered deck.
Thanks to a short corridor with a seating area, this living space is connected to the master bedroom in one wing, and a studio space in another wing.
In the expansive backyard, a large overhang of western red cedar shelters a tiki bar, outdoor seating lounge and an elongated pool.
Next to the bar and lounge area is a barbecue/luau spot where family and friends can enjoy outdoor cooking and feasting under the shade of a Kiawe tree.
Other buildings on the property include a large bathhouse with a wooden bathtub and a parking garage.
Marion Philpotts-Miller, who designed the interiors, used retro elements, rattan chairs, metal bed frames and summery colors including olive green and flamingo pink to create a stylish, surf-shack-inspired look.
With its open design and alfresco chill zones, this home is set up perfectly to enjoy the best of Hawaii’s stunning landscape and pleasantly warm weather.
