The roof concept for this intriguing home is strongly related to the rough climate with plenty of sun and strong ocean winds. The area of the roof is twice the size of the house, so the size of the covered outdoor space equals the size of the indoor space. The house needs no air-conditioning, since it is cross ventilated throughout.

Hawaii is the most recent of the 50 U.S. states (joined the Union in 1959), and is the only U.S. state made up entirely of islands. It is the northernmost island group in Polynesia, occupying most of an archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean.
Hawaii has over a million permanent residents along with many visitors and U.S. military personnel. Its capital is Honolulu on the island of Oʻahu. Due to its mid-Pacific location, Hawaii has many North American and Asian influences along with its own vibrant native culture.
The state encompasses nearly the entire volcanic Hawaiian Island chain, which comprises hundreds of islands spread over 1,500 miles (2,400 km). At the southeastern end of the archipelago, the eight “main islands” are (from the northwest to southeast) Niʻihau, Kauaʻi, Oʻahu, Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi, Kahoʻolawe, Maui and the island of Hawaiʻi. The last is the largest and is often called “The Big Island” to avoid confusing the name of the island with the name of the state as a whole.
The archipelago is physiographically and ethnologically part of the Polynesian subregion of Oceania. Hawaii is the 8th smallest of the 50 U.S. states.
