Beach House Design
Project consisted of two separate four bedroom houses on an approximately 8500 square foot lot fronting the beach in Kailua. The owner desired the main house on the beach end to be one large open space for kitchen, dining and living areas with a continuos view of adjoining areas and the ocean. The guest house acted to focus the view down a central axis toward the sea.
Materials that would well weather the blast of the Trade Winds were chosen for the beach house, with a roof of red cedar shingles and copper flashing, shiplap red cedar on the second floor, and cement stucco on the first floor. Travertine was the principal flooring inside and outside on the ground level to bring the two together. Upstairs, crisp white walls with large windows sit on a rich wood flooring.
