The client’s program was for a 2500 square foot four bedroom three bath two-story home to replace the previous house destroyed by fire. The client wanted to maximize garden space and potential for mountain and ocean views. The second floor great room offers both ocean and mountain views. The owner’s office faces the south Ko`olau Loa mountains. A vine arbor on the garden side of the kitchen and dining nook provides a private outdoor living space, while a street side lanai provides a public lanai. Three second floor balconies allow a private outdoor area for the second floor great room, guest bedroom and master bedroom suite. Prevailing trade winds on a modified saltbox roof-line echo the mountains beyond while managing the breeze flow in a contemporary take on the classic craftsman bungalow. When combined with: heat reflective foil, a vented airspace, and R-38 insulation, window cross-ventilation eliminates the need for air conditioning.
