Our client wanted a clean, modern home, that both maximized the sun and light and withstood the weather in their rainy location. We worked within their desired square footage and budget to consider space, sound, and utilty.
As with all Hawaii Off Grid designs, the roof was a major consideration for this project. We wanted to maximize "active solar gain" - from solar panels for energy, while also maximizing "passive solar gain" by providing a roof that protects the building from allowing in too much sunlight and heat.
One end of the property holds the carport/worshop, the other end holds the master bedroom, and in the middle is the gathering area. This open-concept flex space allows for for a multitude of activities.
