Location: Pahoa, Hawaii
Not long after that spectacular untouched '60s Honolulu home went up for sale, the Hawaii real estate market has another gem on offer. This time, it's a concrete and glass modern stunner designed by San Francisco-based architect Craig Steely. The latest in a series of breezy Hawaii homes erected on lava flow, the 2012-built house sits on a five-acre property on the Big Island, boasting views of tropical fruit gardens, a coffee tree forest, and, of course, the Pacific Ocean.
Taking full advantage of these natural surroundings, the 1,960-square-foot home masters indoor-outdoor living with glass walls and terraces throughout and a saltwater lap pool area that cuts through the building (seemingly a pretty uncanny precedent for this rad German house, hmm.) Anyway, the interiors feature concrete floors, laminated wood beams with tongue-and-groove ceiling battens, and a wood burning fireplace in the open-plan living area. There are also a number eco-conscious maneuvers in place, including solar hot water heater, rainwater collection system, and a heat-reflecting white membrane roof.
