This house was a typical two-story home from the 1950’s, with a compartmentalized floor plan, small rooms and a layout that didn’t take advantage of the spectacular scenery. The owners are frequent entertainers and the home provided no real space to accommodate guests.
The renovation included a complete rearrangement of the interior layout - creating an open plan with generous windows and doors seamlessly flowing from interior to exterior. The home was outfitted with luxurious finishes and updated equipment to enable the owners to host large parties with ease.
The lanai was reworked, adding a trellis to help control sunlight and a dramatic fire pit overlooking the gorgeous views of Honolulu. The project also included a new addition for an elegant master bedroom and bathroom suite.
The result is a graceful improvement to a classic kamaʻaina house – letting the home embrace the assets of its history and location while still accommodating a modern lifestyle.
