A blissful Hawaii Island house built into a dramatic volcanic landscape

Created as a fabulous family retreat by Walker Warner Architects, this Hawaii island house is nestled along the secluded white sandy beach of Kua Bay. The architect connected this home to its volcanic setting and the mesmerizing views of the Pacific Ocean by integrating a material palette of basalt, cedar, and steel.

The property features a sheltered courtyard, reflecting pools, and a negative edge swimming pool that draws this home’s occupants from the interior to the exterior. Entrance into this dwelling is on the mountain side of the property, which is cut into the lava field to limit its visual impact while creating privacy from the nearby neighbors.

The main hale seamlessly frames the ocean with expansive floor-to-ceiling retractable glass doors and wood screens, intended to soften harsh sunlight and provide relief from trade winds without obstructing views. With clean lines, large openings, and simple geometries, the horizontal structure mirrors the ocean’s horizon and provides an elegant transition from lava to sea.

“While the floor-to-ceiling sliding doors open to dramatic vistas, it is also clear that this home does not rely entirely on its incredible views. There are quiet moments such as the guest bedroom facing a calm water feature carved into lava, which is a place of unexpected, serene beauty,” states Nicole Hollis, interior designer of this project.
