The system is organized as a progression of units dispersed all through the property, every having its own extraordinary elements and perspective open doors. The cases are automatically doled out as two dozing units with regular regions, media room, expert suite and fundamental living space. An outside exhibition passage turns into the authoritative and central element for the whole house, joining the two units along a focal pivot.

To help keep up the natural affectability of the house, two separate varieties of rooftop mounted photovoltaic boards counterbalance the living arrangement vitality use while the decision of darker magma stone help warm the pool water through sun oriented radiation. Downpour water accumulation and redirection to three drywells that renew the aquifer are executed all through the property.

Combined with stacked and cut pumice, the two materials frame a generally determined medium installed in Hawaiian convention. Neighborhood wicker bin weaving society was the motivation for the passage structure which reenacts the conventional blessing upon entry service. Different digitally etched wood roofs and screens, all through the house, proceed with the theoretical way to deal with conventional Hawaiian wood cutting further imbuing customary components into the contemporary plan.
