The Kona Residence by the Belzberg Architects Group is an award winning residential design.
Its relaxed but artful mix of reclaimed teak woods and the open layout take advantage of the area’s climate and natural outdoor beauty. The exterior was built with salvaged woods from out of use train tracks and barns.
The home is equipped with solar panels on 2 sections of the roof. There is also a rainwater collection system. Lava rock is worked in the landscaping near the wraparound infinity pool which helps to absorb sunlight into the stones and the solar transfer assists to heat up the pool.
Native materials are used throughout and portions of the home also mimic the region’s skilled basket weaving and wood carving techniques. Showcased outdoors in the front pavilion, it is also incorporated into other details mixed through the home.
The gorgeous interior is organized and minimal but inviting.
Located in Kona, Hawaii, this home is constructed to take advantage of the skyline, glimpses of water and volcanic scenic views. It is assembled in a pod like structure that gives each room its own composition, but still allows a connected feel between the spaces. And with 8,000 square feet to float around in, finding a room alone or filled with company shouldn’t be too hard to do.
Polished and warm, this is a space that would definitely be a nice retreat from extended periods indoors in colder climates.
