Our directive as interior designers was to take this mid-century modern-inspired model home, and bring it forward, appealing to buyers desiring a more contemporary version of Kauai’s laidback lifestyle.
The interior design took its cues from the home’s Vladimir Ossipoff-inspired mid-century architecture. Ossipoff, one of Hawaii’s most renowned architects, was a master at designing with purpose and restraint, while living by the motto “design is in the details.” We approached this home in much the same way.
Expansive lanais with deep overhangs are one of the primary “memory-makers.” Pocket doors open to connect the lanais with the primary living spaces. The dining lanai encourages year round outdoor meals, while the lounging lanai features large punee’s on which to relax and take in a sunset.
