Kalihiwai Ranch

Princeville, Kauai, HI

Kalihiwai Ranch Pavilion is the latest addition to a sprawling coastal property on Kauai’s North Shore. With views across the lush, undulating landscape, it’s a sanctuary for friends to come together to relax and learn. Our challenge was to create an interior space adaptable to a whole range of purposes and gatherings – from screenings, lectures and parties to intimate dinners.

The Pavilion overlooks the emerald blue of the sea. Coral hues are found in the stonewalls of the building, and a stunning oil painting by abstract painter Lynne Drexler hangs at the end of the breezeway. We developed a palette for the interior of the Pavilion reflecting these colors. We worked with the project architect to select materials such as teak, afromosia and sapele woods and limestone that would withstand tropical rains and sun.

Collaboration was key from concept to completion of this project. Through close consultation, we developed complex space plans in response to the client’s need for multiple modular dining and media room layouts. We designed an array of islands to allow caterers to prep at once, supported by a restaurant-grade kitchen, and a smaller central island for an intimate group of guests to gather around.

The design’s fluidity and connection to the outdoors makes the Kalihiwai Ranch Pavilion a truly memorable place to spend time. Our client has noted that the most profound success of the project is the overall feeling of space it has created, and has since referred us to multiple new clients.
