Overview

From dramatic oceanfront homes to old cottages full of memories, Hawaiian houses combine architecture and location to create a sense of relaxation. As people from all over the world (Polynesians, New England missionaries, East and Southeast Asians) have put down roots in the islands, they have combined international motifs with a more traditional Hawaiian ambiance&#151to produce an informally eclectic style that is perfectly suited to contemporary lifestyles.

The Hawaiian House Now takes the reader on a tour of 21 specially photographed homes throughout the islands of Oahu, Hawaii (the Big Island), Maui, and Kauai, including houses that update the "aloha spirit" of traditional Hawaii; town houses in Honolulu; country houses; fantasy houses that express a personal vision; houses that blend the indoors and outdoors; original architectural statements; and, of course, beach houses.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Mercifully, most of us have long outgrown the notion that Hawaiian architecture was limited to grass shacks and simple thatched-roof homes. But even seasoned island watchers will find this bounteous gift pictorial a real eye-opener. The Hawaiian House Now shepherds readers through a visual tour of 21 houses on Oahu, Maiui, Kauai, and the Big Island. The recently photographed subjects include townhouses, country homes, personalized fantasy getaways, and reinterpretations of traditional Hawaiian styles. Island ambiance in a new light.
