Architecture & Design

At Kohanaiki, our vision of a luxury home isn’t just a place to live; it’s a work of art and an expression of your dreams and passions. Revolutionary architecture and breakthrough design have transformed that vision into a private residential club community unlike anything you’ve ever seen in Hawai’i.

That reality was brought to life with the help of world renowned architects Shay Zak, Warren Sunnland, Jim McLaughlin, and Khoi Le. Inspired by the natural beauty of Hawai’i, they have each created distinctly modern interpretations of classic Hawaiian architecture that infuse the very spirit of Kohanaiki’s casual beach atmosphere with exceptional design and outstanding craftsmanship.

Kohanaiki homes showcase a variety of distinct, harmonious design styles, each offering an impeccably refined yet relaxed atmosphere that uniquely fuses the traditional kama’aina beach house with modern amenities and exceptional material selections.

Features include luxurious finishes that are beautiful to the eye, pleasant to the touch, and timelessly elegant. A nod to our authentic island heritage is found in every detail and touch point, from your private outdoor lānai to your spacious ‘ohana (guest) hale. Perfectly framed views of the captivating Pacific Ocean sunsets, the stunning Rees Jones golf course, and breathtaking vistas of Mount Hualālai are no coincidence. They’ve been deliberately built in to let you know you’ve finally arrived at the destination of your dreams. Welcome home.
