"Architecture is an art when one consciously or unconsciously creates aesthetic emotion in the atmosphere and when this environment produces well being. (Luis Barragn)The LocationBordered by hundreds of acres of open space at an elevation of approximately 3000 feet with expansive views of Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and Hualalai mountains and located just above the charming historic Parker Ranch town of Kamuela (Waimea) Hawaii, where walking trails, schools, restaurants and shops, are all walkable.The SettingIn mature groves of Formosan Koa and Olives trees and with much thought a site was created allowing small select openings for visually exploring and actively enjoying the environment. Here, when the door is closed the world is left behind. The PlaceA confluence of post modern and Asian where minimalism and function create a retreat with no beginning, no end, where open space and nature embrace. To live in it is to experience well being. (Owner, November 2019)
