The building is a hybrid of a traditional Hawaiian roof typology and a Spanish courtyard typology; with a central courtyard as a private retreat from the perimeter veranda or ‘lanai.' The extreme climate conditions demanded programmatic distribution of the house into a micro village, with four distinct volumes arranged around the courtyard protected under a single roof. By placing the volumes casually under the monolithic roof, the lanai is broken into a series of distinct places oriented toward specific views of the panoramic landscape.
