Designboom features Hale Nukumoi. Read about the “pair of beach dwellings nestled beneath the Hawaiian palms” below.
“San Francisco-based practice Walker Warner Architects takes to the Hawaiian island of Kauai to realize its ‘Hale Nukumoi.’ A quintessential beach retreat, the architecture is open and casual, nestled amongst the mature palm trees to face directly onto the ocean. The project comprises a main house and guest house, along with a swimming pool within its large yard. The studio notes: An indoor-outdoor lifestyle is exemplified by the home’s airy design—large sliding doors and walls, a custom two-story rain screen, and layered plantings balance connections to nature with privacy.”
