The Kona Residence is spectacular architecture integrated with a exotic Hawaiian environment. This magnificent house was designed by Belzberg Architects in 2010. The house was designed in a series of pods distributed throughout the 8,000 sq ft property. The pods consist of 2 sleeping pods with common areas, media and main living space. A central axis became the focal feature for the entire house, this central axis connects each of the pods through an exterior corridor. In order to maintain this design as environmentally friendly as possible,2 separate arrays of roof mounted photovoltaic panels offset the residence energy usage while the choice of darker lava stone help heat the pool water via solar radiation. Rain water collection and redirection to 3 dry-wells that replenish the aquifer are implemented throughout the property. Reclaimed teak timber from older barns and train tracks are recycled for the exterior of the home. Together with stacked and cut lava rock, the 2 materials form a historically driven medium embedded in Hawaiian tradition. Local basket weaving culture was the inspiration for the entry pavilion which reenacts the traditional gift upon ceremony. CNC milled ceilings and screens throughout the house continue the abstract approach to traditional Hawaiian wood carving. WOW, STUNNING !!!!! (Photography by Benny Chan )
