136 Puako project is our most current project. It is located in a Special Management Area and Flood Zone VE, the most restrictive for coastal area projects.
In this 3812 SF, 2430 SF enclosed, house, each main component is separated from each other.The living, dining and kitchen are separated from the master bedroom by the lanai. The shed roofs allow hot air to migrate freely from low to high,
out and away from the living spaces.
The overall concept is to celebrate life in this very mild climate. Outdoor and indoor living is less apparent. The master bedroom has a roof under the main roof. This is a loose interpretation of how ancient Hawaiians lived outdoor and often slept under tree canopies. The roof of the garage is equiped with photovoltaic panels for solar power.
The house also utilizes passive lighting through wall width sliding glass wall and translucent wall panels. Grey water is recycled to use for flushing toilets and gardening.
