Surreal Looking Beach House Within a Dramatic Environment
This beautiful beach house is located in the vicinity of a famous surfing spot, close to Slaughterhouse Beach, Maui and was designed by Olson Kundig Architects . The landscape looks amazing and at a first glance the pictures could give the impression that perhaps the construction is not real. The unusual building is said to take the concept of a surfing hut forward and combine its traditional features with a contemporary way of living. Here is more from the architects:”The structure’s walls are constructed from rammed earth. In this process, different local earth-based mixtures are packed together, and the resulting striated layers are visible both inside and outside the building. The walls blend in with the surroundings, are low maintenance, virtually fireproof, and a strong barrier to sound.” Three “huts” were combined in order to complete this residence, each with their well defined purpose: living space, guest rooms and a general sleeping area.
