Description

Sitting boldly alongside the shoreline, the Maui Residence is designed to steadiness openness with privateness, and daylight with shadow. The road aspect of the home presents itself as a modest, single-story construction outlined by a board-formed concrete wall that wraps across the courtyard. Behind the solidity of the entrance façade, a full two-story program is revealed, evenly constructed of glass and metal, opening the dwelling areas and bedrooms to an unlimited seascape. To shelter in opposition to intense direct solar and tropical storms, ten-foot roof overhangs, and sliding screens provide an efficient and stylish response to guard from the tough coastal surroundings. Draped from the roof are two copper mesh rain screens that direct rainwater runoff. Inside, the Hawaiian ocean breeze flows via the massive sliding glass doorways, assisted by ceiling followers to maximise pure air flow and decrease vitality use. These measures and extra, taken collectively, culminating in a constructing that harnesses the weather and achieved a LEED Silver certification for its sustainable design methods.
