Overlooking the Pacific on the coast of the Big Island, the Makani Eka House is a celebration of modern Hawaiian architecture. The property, designed by Greg Warner principal of Walker Warner Architects, is a forward-leaning interpretation of traditional forms inspired by renowned local architect, Vladimir Ossipoff. Warner was first exposed to Ossipoff while attending Hawaii Preparatory Academy where he designed the school's chapel. The architect's mid-century influences can be found throughout the home's materials and intense connection with the natural surroundings. Both the ocean and the lush landscapes are on full display through the interior's expansive glazing while oversized eaves expand the living spaces to the outdoor terraces.
