A modern cast-in-place concrete house located on Big Island, Hawaii.
Craig Steely Architecture was commissioned to design a modern cast-in-place concrete house situated on five acres of the Ohia forest. This modern family home frames spacious indoor and outdoor living areas along with breathtaking views of the forest and the coastline of Big Island, Hawaii. It’s a reductive architecture that offers a quality of living in close relation to this unique environment.
The 140 foot long and 48 inch tall x 12 inch wide concrete beam is the most striking feature of the house. It extends over the full length of the building. Only three concrete walls supporting it along the entire span. Large windows and outdoor areas offer a skillful transition between the man-made architecture and the natural environment of the Ohia forest.
