Ultra-Modern Design in an Exclusive Hawai‘i Enclave
Kailua, HI, USA
Nestled on the hillside above the Mokulua Islands in Hawai‘i, this estate home is an expression of contemporary elegance not often encountered in the Hawaiian Islands. The home’s extraordinary architecture and interior design are rivaled only by its spectacular natural setting in the exclusive Lanikai enclave, located on the east-facing coast of the island of O‘ahu.The home’s ultra-modern interior was informed by the rich, vibrant colors of the landscape and spectacular ocean and island views. Designed to invite the natural world into the interior space with floor to ceiling windows, the home’s design combines curated premium finishes in a neutral color palette that showcases one of the most iconic and sought-after views in Hawai‘i. This secluded and private compound features a covered rooftop bar, a swimming pool and jacuzzi to enjoy the spectacular views, and a kitchen designed and built of black oak by German firm BT45. Practical luxuries include a climate-controlled wine cellar and Tesla powerwall that stores energy from 36 photovoltaic panels. New owners can enjoy the white sands and turquoise waters of famed Lanikai Beach, all just 30 minutes from the vibrant cultural life, urban amenities and international airport in Honolulu.
