Kuki’o Hillside House, Kona, Hawai'i

On an exposed site overlooking lava fields and a beautiful white sand beach, we worked with the owner and architect to site the buildings and landscape improvements to provide wind protection while maintaining the spectacular sunset views. The home’s landscaping has a dual personality. The makai side is more minimal and utilizes many native shoreline plants adapted to wind, direct sun and salt spray. On the mauka side, a lush tropical garden protected from the elements by the building serves as the entrance.
