Lanai, Manoa

Building in the heart of one of Oahu's most historic neighborhoods, H-1 F+N studied the context while developing the architectural parti for this lanai addition. The craftsmanship of the heavy-timber construction utilizes traditional techniques with only concealed fasteners at the joinery. In a contemporary twist, durable composite decking is used for the flooring of the lanai and cascades down in a stairway to the landscape. A new operable wall system opens the lanai to the newly renovated kitchen (see the Guitar Kitchen). Back
