David and Henrietta Whitcomb Residence

Diamond Head, Honolulu, Hawai‘i

A dream house nestled on the slopes of Diamond Head! The home was originally designed by famed archiect, Vladimir Ossipoff, as a group of bungalows, on this one-acre prpoerty in the 1960's.  The most notable aspect of the house is its garden like feeling of openness, and from the interior of the house, the Clients can see both the Diamond Head side of the Garden and by just a turn, they can see the Ewa side of the Garden.  It is almost like living in a tree house in a garden.  With the Clients allowing me the provilege of designing their exterior spaces, I was able to creat a landscape for their Kamaaina style home that fits their needs and lifestyle, that of an indoor-outdoor living space in a tropical paradise.  By integrating the landscape with local artists' sculptures, this well used landscape garden was transformed into a garden of art.
