The clients hoped to establish a meaningful connection with the surrounding landscape and to maximize natural daylight within the house, taking advantage of the area\u2019s lush vegetation and pleasant climate. This desire for openness was complicated by the need for privacy; with a public access path to the ocean directly west of the site, a steady stream of surfers pass by every day. In response, the bedrooms and children\u2019s playroom were consolidated on the upper level and shifted towards the east, screening them from below while still providing extraordinary mountain and ocean views."]]],[1,"blockquote",[[0,[],0,"\u0022Lovely cultural references to both Hawaii and Japan.\u0022 - Jury comment"]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"Given Hawaii\u2019s highly corrosive coastal environment, intense sunlight, and tropical storms, the durability of building components was paramount. The deep roof eaves extend outward, providing shelter and prolonging the lifespan of the materials underneath. The majority of the exterior is clad with cedar siding, with the lanai and exterior decks constructed of Cumaru, all of which can weather naturally without the need for extensive maintenance. Durable copper roofing and wall paneling complement the natural wood finishes, developing a rich patina that varies subtly with the exposure. Marine-grade stainless steel hardware and teak detailing provide accents at the human scale."]]]]}
