Hurricane Preparedness is REAL


As Hurricane Lane churned toward the Hawaiian islands last week, every property owner determined the degree of preparedness to realize. In the case of the Pacific Heights House, a two story historic wood framed structure perched over 500 feet above sea level, the decision was made to install a custom window protection system, which was designed, procured and installed in 3.5 days. Translucent corrugated PVC panels cut to overlay existing openings and secured with Velcro, over-sized washers and screws to window casing is pictured here. Thankfully, Lane was weakened off shore by wind shear and this house now has a ready-made system for future events.

Hawaiian Modern House at Kukui‘ula in Ke Ola


Named Hale ‘Ike Māla (house with a view of the garden), this new custom home in the Kahalawai neighborhood of Kukui‘ula on Kauai's south shore is featured in a story by Malia Mattoch McManus in Ke Ola. Malia describes Dean Sakamoto's design which was informed by the principles of Hawaiian Modern master Vladimir Ossipoff. Insight from executive architect Keith Kelly and interior designer Marion Philpotts round out this eloquent article which is illustrated by Greg Blore's dramatic photos.
