Inspiration from architect:

the native ohia tree gnarled gray bark offsetting its brilliant red lehua flowers, is one of my first inspirations for building in concrete.

The Lavaflow 7 continues our exploration of a reductive architecture that enhances the experience of living in this compelling environment.
