Eco Modern...


With Hawaiian style in mind, this "good 'green' home" in Maui was the first home to be LEED certified, in Hawaii. The architecture is clean and modern, with the exterior created towards energy efficiency, while blending with the natural surroundings and interiors. Some interior materials used are eucalyptus hardwoods, cedar walls, exposed slab concrete floors sealed and polished, and countertops of concrete and recycled glass. With the minimalist approach in mind, they eliminated some elements; like window treatments that would have hid the retractable windows, and artwork, to showcase the beauty of the walls.
