East meets West in this bright, Asian-inspired Honolulu home.
Redesigning a contractor grade floor plan produced an efficient space and resulted in a stylishly new-built home. One of the client’s key objectives was a kitchen with a large inviting feel that incorporate activities and work zones. That was achieved by designing a custom banquette and an office area as well as providing a large island and prep space that incorporated plenty of storage. The adjacent open living room includes two French doors providing breath taking views of Oahu’s’ Maunalua Bay. What was once a long L shaped hall has been straighten and reduced allowing for a focal niche that can be seen from the living room. Regaining the square footage from the remaining hallway provided space to create a wheelchair accessible guest bathroom as well as providing a small power room with ample space. Another priority achieved on the client’s wish list was a large functional laundry room that is aesthetically pleasing with ample storage space. Adding the style and panache to this tropical Asian home is the inherited treasures infused with travel keepsakes.
