The Coral Reef, Kailua

The concept for this project organizes a series of spaces around a wall element inspired by the coral reefs of Hawaii. A renovated master bedroom, bathroom and a pool house addition are connected with interstitial outdoor courtyards along the perforated wall. Experienced through snorkeling and diving, the edges of the reef provide windows and passageways to spaces beyond. Formed by the currents, surf and by the growth of the coral, there is infinite irregularity in these forms. The most intriguing ones relate to the human scale. Back
