The tropical homes designed by San Francisco-based architect Shay Zak perfectly capture the spirit and culture of the islands. Subtleties of proportion, celebration of light, and thoughtful framing of views are delicately balanced to create exceptional homes that are perfectly suited to their dramatic oceanside sites. Constructed of natural materials that are beautiful to the eye and pleasant to the touch, the structures mesh seamlessly with the landscape and age with grace.
New Tropical Classics: Hawaiian Homes by Shay Zak features color photography, site plans, and descriptions of eight extraordinary residences that both embrace the traditional elements of tropical architecture and push it in exciting new directions.
