Located on the windward side of Oahu, this home is nestled into the Olomana Heights neighborhood with sweeping views of Olomana Ridge and the Ko’olau Range. Phase 2 work will include a pool and native landscaping as the owners continue to furnish their new home. The design is a response to the building site, specifically as it relates to views, prevailing winds (for controlling natural ventilation) and solar exposure throughout each day of the year. The site predominantly experiences prevailing trade winds from the NE and occasional Kona winds from the SW. The low-impact home has a modest footprint with a massing that hugs the land and roof forms that gesture to the ridge lines beyond.
