Foley Residence

Honolulu, Hawaii

The firm's first home designed outside the continental United States, the Foley Residence is located in Makiki Heights on the island of Oahu. Situated on a south-facing, down-sloped lot, the new residence has panoramic views of Honolulu and Diamond Head to the south and south-west, as well as beautiful vistas of the lush green hills of Mt. Tantalus to the north-east. This new two-story design creates an intimate, sunken courtyard on the entry side of the house, in contrast to dramatic cantilevered decks and terraces with deep roof overhangs on the south side, providing protected outdoor living spaces that take full advantage of the outstanding views
