New home is Diamond Head ‘oasis’
A new luxury home in the historic Diamond Head neighborhood has been completed by Homeworks Construction. It replaces the 50-yearold, single-level structure that previously occupied the 5,000-square-foot site at the eastern end of Kapiolani Park.
The Homeworks Construction design team worked closely with the owner to create a new, custom home to suit the needs of the family and also take better advantage of the choice location with views of Diamond Head and the park.
According to Homeworks president and chief administrative officer Marshall Hickox, the residence was designed to maximize us able outdoor space for new landscaping and a swimming pool. Indoor living space was augmented by the addition of a second floor that includes an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) built out over a two-car garage with direct entry into the home. The ADU includes three rooms and captures an ocean view.
The 4,420-square-foot custom home includes two bedrooms, two full baths and a half-bath, a study, spacious kitchen, and great room that opens with pocketing doors to the large covered lanai and swimming pool (as seen on the cover photo). The lanai includes an outdoor barbecue, craft room, and half-bath.
“The owner chose Home-works as their contractor because they were familiar with our work from previous projects that required creative design and the ability to build in difficult spaces. Although there was not much room to build outward and the front of the property is close to the road, we were able to come up with layout solutions that enabled us to make better use of available space and expand outward and upward, while observing building codes,” Hickox says.
“Privacy was enhanced through orientation of the structure and landscaping, which included new gardens around the swimming pool, planting trees in the front and back yards, and enclosing the front yard with a rock wall, fencing, and a security gate.
“Our goal is always to meet and exceed the client’s expectations in both quality of work and execution of their vision — a seamless indoor-outdoor oasis and the craftsman style architecture synonymous with the neighborhood,” Hickox adds.
