3: Hale Nukumoi, an island paradise

Indian Summer 2020

One of our recent projects is featured in the current issue of Modern Luxury Hawaii (Nov/Dec 2020). We partnered with Walker Warner Architects on this Kauai oceanfront home, which gracefully grew into a compound when the adjacent property became available. Reading the article took me back to its incredible beach views—which you can spot in two photos on our homepage.

One of the particular joys of working with these clients was designing enhancements to day-to-day living for a family that loves to gather—sometimes in groups of four or five people relaxing, sometimes 20 people having drinks on the lanai at sunset. From a lovely, loud bell we designed to summon everyone in from the beach, to a dazzling array of glassware to handle every beverage preference (and fit beautifully in custom cabinetry): delight is in the details.
