Tropical Split Level

This 9,000 square foot beach house in Ka'anapali, Hawaii, looks out to Lanai and Molokai from an open split-level floor-plan.  The interior and exterior have various woods left natural to contrast with the light plaster walls.  Multiple dormers interrupt the wood-shingled Balinese rooflines to allow dramatic natural daylight, while large overhangs keep the interiors cool.
