The design elements of the space reflect the sustainability of the Hawaiian land division concept of an ahupuaʻa, the wedge-shaped land sections that run from the mountains to the sea. The design features the three main elements of the ahupuaʻa – ma uka (mountain), kula (plains) and makai (sea) – in the selection of natural materials, which transition from one zone to the next, yet harmonize in a sophisticated, yet playful manner.
