This old Plantation-era home was originally a huge family compound. An award-winning Merrie Monarch hula halau called its living room home. Badly in need of an update or a tear-down, the new homeowners chose to save the structure, despite the enormity of the project. It was a historic place in its own way, located in the same sacred ahupua’a where King Kamehameha the Great was born.
Once the cladding was removed, the building resembled a mishmash of sheds. It took considerable vision to reorder it into a lovely modern dwelling. It would became a luxurious home deserving of its grand entryway, so curved structural arches were designed to complement high ceilings with multiple skylights and a magnificent Indian marble floor.
