some mcms on oahu

Postby markvalli » Mon Aug 25, 2008 12:46 am

on vacation and exploring kailua and parts of honolulu. Here are some neat or representative houses. I have a couple more days if any one from honolulu has suggestions on places to go by...

start with a house that backs onto kailua beach- the living room area looks great, like an x-wing fighter crashed into a block of ice.

Image


a long, low one in the hills above the waialae country club in honolulu

Image

this one isn't my favorite but it just seems like iconic hawaiian modernish ...

Image


lower down in same area

Image

example of bank of multiple small windows opened to breeze

Image

big louvered windows for same effect

Image


nice sunburst concrete blocks on carport

Image

freaky pyramid corner on house adjacent to golf course- not my fav, but interesting

Image


like the orange shadows cast by the screen on this home near the consulate area just off of pali highway


Image

cool one in neighborhood where kailua rd and kalanianaole highway intersect

Image

zillions of individual windows in a row

Image

lots of the more modest ranch houses in the same area are built partly from patterned concrete block of some kind

Image

Image

a house with a long first floor and elevated second story in the hills above lanikai

Image

another lanikai house, this one with a long row of fixed windows

Image

lanikai compound- don't exactly like the colors

Image

2 story house near kailua beach- unfortunately a mini mansion is being constructed between it and the ocean view

Image

like the wall protruding from this otherwise modest house (the wing to the right looks a lot like a manufactured home)

Image

nice house on a hill between kailua and lanikai

Image

tract home on a street of houses built by developer Joe Pao

Great pics-thanks! Nice to see some regional examples....the only modern Hawaiian houses I'd ever seen photographed (before these) were those of Vladimir Ossipoff.

yeah its fun to see houses from different areas.

here are a few more from the Mikiki heights area and also near diamondhead (which is unfortunately also infested by all these newish, really heavy, huge, ugly homes like crosses between balinese hotels, japanese temples, and bland mediterranean estates)
