Beautiful Houses: Kona Residence in Hawaii
- Aug 12, 2011
The idea in this series is to show beautiful and inspiring houses. Houses that are remarkable for its design, elegance, elements, concept or simply because they are beautiful. So if you like architecture, interior design and beautifully designed houses, you are at the right spot. Check out this week beautiful house and stay tuned for more...
This week we present you the breathtaking Kona Residence.
The Kona Residence is a project by Belzberg Architects, a firm that is all about architectural innovation. Nestled between cooled lava flows, the Kona residence situates its axis not with the linearity of the property, but rather with the axiality of predominant views available to the site. The program is arranged as a series of pods distributed throughout the property, each having its own unique features and view opportunities. The pods are programmatically assigned as two sleeping pods with common areas, media room, master suite and main living space. An exterior gallery corridor becomes the organizational and focal feature for the entire house, connecting the two pods along a central axis.
This house is astonishing. The place itself, Hawaii, is already a paradise, and the house is simply breathtaking. The volumes are beautiful and inspiring. The interiors, materials, spaces... everything makes me want live here ;)
Check out Belzberg Architects website for further details about this and other projects. See you next time.
