A floating pool pavilion sits within the pool at the mauka end of this narrow oceanfront lot. “The space was conceived as an outdoor room, sheltered from the frequently strong trade winds of Kailua Beach,” says project architect Peter N. Vincent, FAIA. “It features a 100-foot-long pool on the axis of the main living pavilion and becomes the ‘heart’ of the lot.” The pavilion separates the pool from the spa while also becoming a focal point from the main living pavilion.

It took more than 15 years to complete, but this stunning oceanfront home in Kailua is a spectacular tropical family estate. The design creates a contemporary cluster of buildings including a two-story main house, a guesthouse, a pool, a barbecue pavilion and an auto court. The layout successfully maximizes the living, lanai and outdoor spaces from the strong trade winds while optimizing areas for outdoor living.
