New Tropical Classics

Hawaiian Homes by Shay Zak

As Erika Heat points out in her introductory essay, Malama ‘Aina: Care For The Land, the spirit and culture of the Hawaiian Islands are perfectly captured in the residences designed by San Francisco-based architect Shay Zak.
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 ocean-side 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 extraordinary residences that both embrace the traditional elements of tropical architecture and push it in exciting new directions.
