On an island of both fierce and gentle contrasts that took millions of years to mold, AIA award-winning architect Craig Steely has crafted a home in harmony with both. Originally designed in 1999 by architect Craig Steely, and subsequently remodeled by Robert Trickey, this holiday home in Hawaii launched the first of seven others designed as “Lava Flow” houses.

Co-existing within the dramatic landscape, California and Hawaii based Steely embraces the stark realities of the environment while focusing on developing modern, livable design rooted in its context. Featured in the NY Times, California Home & Design, Island Living and Minimalist Houses, the home is part of a trend of contemporary home design on the island.

The L-shaped structure is crafted with interlocking volumes that are repeated throughout, with luminous, open-plan glass walls that frame the landscape. With stunning views that sweep from the upper rift zone down to the glimmering Pacific, the juxtaposition between the static lines and the rugged, wild landscape is an artful collision of order and chaos, that’s both timeless and powerful.
