Lavaflow 2 – Liu/Steely House

Big Island, Hawaii

Located on a cliff above the ocean, this house is a 1400 sq.ft. cantilevered concrete slab with steel framing enclosing a glass louvered living area. The glass louvers wrap the entire building, allowing air to flow while dampening sunlight and shedding rain. At night the house glows like a lantern.
