Honolulu

An extensive remodel of a classic Hawaiian estate built by steel magnate Henry J. Kaiser in the late 1950s east of Honolulu at the foot of Koko Head Crater, with magnificent views of Maunalua Bay and Diamond Head, and the only private harbor on Oahu. Inspired by the 1930s work of Mies van der Rohe, with floating horizontal planes, book-matched marble walls and expansive glass doors reminiscent of his Barcelona Pavilion, the interiors are an inventive synthesis of modernism and Hawaiiana.
