This 18,000 sq ft residence spans the South Kohala Coastline and three separate hale structures. Lush garden pathways and water features connect the large main living pavilion, bedroom suites, and area for recreation and theater. The desire to incorporate curves and Japanese design elements inspired the waving of roof lines, exposed cedar carpentry, and stone walls, each requiring the highest level of team coordination and elegance in structural detailing.
