A Luxury House is probably one of the most desirable accomplishments in everyone’s life. Devised by Walker Warner Architects and interior designer Matthew Leverone, this luxury house in Hawai pulls inspiration from the spectacular Maui coastline.
Well-known for creating elegantly spare residences, Walker Warner Architects designs spaces thoroughly and thoughtfully integrated into their settings.
“Much of what we do is what I call contextual architecture” – Greg Warner
Perched on a spectacular oceanfront site along the island’s western coast, this luxury house belongs to a couple that first met on Maui, and they wanted to build a getaway in a place rich with personal meaning. The couple also hired Matthew Leverone and landscape designer Ron Lutsko Jr. in order to round out the collaborative design team.
Appearing to be a single-story modernist structure composed of glass, steel, and warm-toned concrete, this luxury house scales, and amazing views gradually unfold.
This luxury house has a large, open space containing the kitchen and the living and dining areas. The property also has a master suite and an office, all of which are wrapped in floor-to-ceiling glass for exquisite vistas.
Due to the fact that the luxury house drops off as it slopes toward the beach, the architects were able to create an entire lower floor beneath the main one that contains two guest bedrooms, a family room, and another office. Overlooking the sea, this luxury house also offers a large terrace and swimming pool.

To maximize cross-ventilation and natural light, the architects made the glass doors and windows as tall as possible. The materials used in this luxury house were chosen for their durability, given the corrosive salty air presented in that area.
Neutral-toned upholsteries and handwoven pillow fabrics help create a richly understated backdrop. There are vintage and modern furniture designs all over this luxury house. The owners of the property also collect art, so Leverone and the couple worked closely with art consultant Tom O’Connor.
“I don’t believe in mimicking nature.”
Native taros, with their large leaves, are placed around the house, while kiawe trees were planted.
“Elevate the qualities of the existing landscape but not imitate them.”
The walls of stacked lava strips that define the front courtyard and the sides of the property are how the team acknowledges the place. Outside a lower-floor bedroom, four heliotrope trees will grow to shade the courtyard in which they’re planted. It’s a decent summation of this luxury house sanctuary, which adds up to a harmonic whole.
