Hale Ko'olani Hawaii Estate-Exterior
This design is more of an intimate private resort rather than a typical home. The estate flows from inside to out, from mountain to sea where traditional Hawaiian design is combined with Balinese/Zen overtones to create a luxurious feeling of calm and serenity. The exterior is surrounded in a rich red cedar which gives a warm and inviting feel as you enter the hand carved custom gates which I designed and had made in Brazil. The interior features limestone and Brazilian slate throughout with a solid Iroko wooden bathtub in the Master Bathroom (Iroko Wood is native to the west coast of Africa). The interior of the home opens to a courtyard and infinity pool with forever views. My main goal with this design was to obscure the lines of the interior and the exterior.
