The Aloha spirit.

Project image 1

In the heart of Honolulu is a dynamic destination where nature and elegance coexist. This is Kō'ula, refers to the red sugar cane once grown in the area. Thoughtfully designed spaces seamlessly flow from indoor to outdoor, evoking the organic shapes, repeating patterns, and rich textures of the uniquely breathtaking backdrop that is Hawaii. Stunning vistas, the vivid blues of the ocean, the sparkling city skyline and the majestic mountains, awaken your senses. A sanctuary by the sea, where you can at once have it all and escape from it all. This is modern island living.

Located in the centre of the city, Ward Village was once the home of Victoria Ward, the matriarch of a prominent Honolulu family. The land then became the property of the Howard Hughes Corporation in 2009. Since then, HHC has transformed what was a decaying industrial area into a walkable urban core and community gathering place.


The twisting forms of the exterior were achieved by stacked structural elements called wallums. Acting both as walls and columns, the wallums make for column-free interiors, flexible layouts and support and shade for the building's lanais. And an expansive open-air lobby creates a seamless transition from the beautiful outside to the beautiful inside.


Interiors are designed with natural materials and custom details creating an inviting residence. Select homes with private lānais welcome in Hawaii's signature trade winds while floor-to-ceiling windows highlight the majestic Ko'olau mountain range and the vivid blues of O'ahu's South Shore. Open kitchens are equipped with honey appliances that integrate perfectly with the living and dining room.
