Hale Nukumoi is the quintessential Hawaiian beach house: open, casual, and unfussy. Adjacent to a popular public beach, the house makes skillful use of oversized sliding doors, a custom rainscreen, and layered plantings to provide much-needed privacy when desired.
The home’s material palette seems to spring from the land itself: coral-colored concrete, peeled ohia logs, and dark tile that recalls nearby lava flows.

“The house makes skilful use of oversized sliding doors, a custom rain screen, and layered plantings that close the house when desired for privacy,” said architect Greg Warner.
Inside, the home’s modest but thoughtful footprint provides ship-like efficiency with numbered bunks, hooks, and storage baskets to help younger guests organize their belongings. The house is ready-made for easy vacationing with extended family and friends.
