Hale Nukumoi is the quintessential Hawaiian beach house: open, casual, and unfussy. Adjacent to a popular public beach, the house makes skillful use of oversized sliding doors, a custom rainscreen, and layered plantings to provide much-needed privacy when desired. The home’s material palette seems to spring from the land itself: coral-colored concrete, peeled ohia logs, and dark tile that recalls nearby lava flows. Inside, the home’s modest but thoughtful footprint provides ship-like efficiency with numbered bunks, hooks, and storage baskets to help younger guests organize their belongings. The house is ready-made for easy vacationing with extended family and friends.

“The main living space was responsive to the local climate and created a grand space in a simple but clear gesture.”

“Functionality is often about the details. The approach in this vacation home was to create a numbering system for bunks, baskets and towels so kids have designated areas to organize their things within a shared bedroom. Just that little bit of planning and organization allows for less time spent chasing belongings and more time spent enjoying the house and time with family and friends.”
- Thomas Clapper, Senior Associate, WWA

“The whole building has to perform, not just the exterior. We like to collect a palette of materials that has an enduring quality but also gets better as it aesthetically ages. It all has this really beautiful quality that, as it patinas, it gets better, and the clients don’t have to maintain the property as much."
