The Architects for this project aspired to make a home that celebrates human activity. Climate considerations played a central role in the building’s form and function.
A porous design opens the house to eastern trade winds, optimizing natural ventilation while preserving views of the valley and ocean.
The project is a dynamic yet harmonious composition that has woven the building, landscape and its residents together.
