Slaughterhouse Beach House

Designed by Olson Kundig and formerly owned by renowned landscape photographer Peter Lik, the Slaughterhouse Beach House is a stunning mix of architecture and natural beauty. The home is perched on a West Maui cliff and split into three connected huts, one for guests, one for the bedrooms, and one for the main living area. The latter is notable for its twin window walls that lift up and out of the way at the push of a button, opening the space to the sea on one side and the mountains on the other, and the enormous kitchen counter that extends out through the space and onto the Brazilian hardwood deck. Each one of the huts benefits from the shape of their corrugated, zinc-coated aluminum roofs, which were formed to use the constant breeze as a vacuum, sucking hot air out and letting cool air in. Yet it's the surrounding landscape that's the real star, especially the world-class views of the sun setting over Moloka'i, and the rocky shoreline below.

  • Edge House

    Nestled between Port Charles' Four Mile Beach and a public lookout above, the design of the Edge House was born from the need to preserve the public views. The result is a futuristic, open floor plan two-bedroom home that more resembles a spaceship than a bungalow. Highlights include a 10 meter infinity lap pool, a floating daybed adjacent to the master bedroom, waterfall features that help to provide cooling in dry months, a roof that harvests rain to in-ground water tanks for use in irrigation, and a concrete structure that's built to stand up to the challenging tropical environment.

  • Exo Shelter

    Born from the aftermath of Katrina, the Exo Shelter is meant for use in an emergency but versatile enough to handle everything from festivals to long-term camping. The sleek design separates into two pieces — a floor and an upper shell, both of which weigh less than 400 lbs each and can be moved by hand — and is stackable, making it easy to transport to the setup location. Inside, there's space enough for four people with beds that fold out of the walls, four wall outlets for charging gadgets, LED lighting, and climate control. Entry is handled via NFC, and the LED display above the door makes sure you don't try wandering into someone else's pod.
