Musubi House

Paauilo, Big Island, Hawaii

Located on 100 acres of pasture land near the Kalopa Native Forest Reserve on the northeast slope of Mauna Kea. This cast-in-place concrete house is completely off the grid—powered by PV panels and catching all domestic water on the roof and storing it in cisterns. In this windy location an interior courtyard offers protected outdoor living.
