Nestled between cooled lava flows, the Kona residence situates its axis not with the linearity of the property, but rather with the axiality of predominant views available to the site. Within the dichotomy of natural elements and a geometric hardscape, the residence integrates both the surrounding views of volcanic mountain ranges to the east and ocean horizons westward.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemThe program is arranged as a series of pods distributed throughout the property, each having its own unique features and view opportunities. The pods are programmatically assigned as two sleeping pods with common areas, media room, master suite and main living space. An exterior gallery corridor becomes the organizational and focal feature for the entire house, connecting the two pods along a central axis.

Rain water collection and redirection to three drywells that replenish the aquifer are implemented throughout the property. Reclaimed teak timber from old barns and train tracks are recycled for the exterior of the home.  Save this picture!renderingCoupled with stacked and cut lava rock, the two 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 arrival ceremony. Various digitally sculpted wood ceilings and screens, throughout the house, continue the abstract approach to traditional Hawaiian wood carving further infusing traditional elements into the contemporary arrangement.Save this picture!© Benny Chan/FotoworksProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Sixth Jaap Bakema FellowshipArticlesmodeLab Parametric Design WorkshopArticles Share Save this picture!© Benny Chan/Fotoworks+ 33 Share United States CopyAbout this officeBelzberg ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKailua-KonaHousesUnited StatesPublished on August 09, 2011Cite: “Kona Residence / Belzberg Architects” 09 Aug 2011.
