This luxury renovation transformed a compartmentalized home into an open, modern space ideal for the flow of daily living while showcasing worldly art. The renovation objectives provided for a continuity of harmonious living, featuring new mauka-makai views, natural ventilation and an enhanced ambiance that blurs the home’s boundaries. The kitchen, previously sectioned off from the family and dining rooms, became a focal point. A structural load-bearing wall and corner dumbwaiter were removed, effectively decompartmentalizing both the upper and lower levels. The kitchen now features the largest island ever designed by PVA and a stunning custom-made, hand-blown, recycled glass aqua chandelier. Also enlarged and opened were the master suite, entry courtyard and Great Room, resulting in a strengthened indoor-outdoor relationship.
