Waikiki

Waikiki


This concept proposal was for a site that was in sensitive dunes with uninterupted sea views. A solar court was introduced which allowed north winter sun to the living areas while large shaded balconies could still face the ocean views to the west. Insulated concrete was proposed as the EPS blocks could be brought in by hand more easily than bricks. The footprint of the home was located in a flattish saddle between high dunes.
