Besides being a 2021 and 2024 Building Industry Association award winning builder, Kai Ridge Hawaii is a locally owned and fully licensed general contractor with decades of building experience, specializing in design-build, major renovation, and kitchen and bathroom remodel.

A Kahala renovation and design-built addition project is the highlight to exemplify the company’s excellent craftsmanship and high-quality construction, which won the BIA 2024 Building Industry Grand award.

Inspired by modernism architectural style, the design concept is derived from simplicity, con-temporary but luxury and in harmony with surrounding nature. The house’s exterior structure shape features solid wood and stucco, which generates its unique character. The casement windows throughout the house add an accent to the exterior shape. Plus, the house balances the sun, tradewinds, and creates a vista between the verdant hill and the ocean.


Solid mahogany pivot entry doors open to unparalleled, unobstructed views from three floors, each accompanied with its own spacious lanai through bi-fold sliding doors. The rooftop terrace with glass railings offers amazing views of the city, Punchbowl Crater and the ocean. The open outdoor living is perfect to enjoy some sunshine during the day and cool breezes at night.

The custom ceiling-high European kitchen cabinets and open kitchen layout have a stunning modern and minimalist design. The sustainable cabinet material, dovetail drawers, self-closing doors and drawers, and combination of two contrast colors for wall and base cabinets are central features for this high-end kitchen. The seamlessly built-in microwave, retractable Miele hood and Viking high performance appliances imbue elegance and luxury. The unique and eye-catching full backsplash accent wall personalizes the kitchen, giving character and charm to it. The waterfall Cosentino island embodies simplistic design trends and offers a casual space to dine, in addition to extra storage and countertop space.

This smart home features a stereo receiver with Bluetooth, so you can enjoy music while cooking or entertaining guests. The TV marble wall exemplifies simplicity and contemporary living style while the warm stone tone color matches with the kitchen and dining area. The location of bi-fold sliding doors and front doors are based on the direction of the tradewinds to increase energy efficiency.


The connection between the first and second floor are solid oak stairs with a glass railing, along with chandelier lighting hanging from the hallway. The second floor is comprised with master bedrooms and a bathroom, walk-in closets and two other bedrooms. The bi-fold sliding doors connect the master bedrooms to the balcony, which widen the view from the bedroom. The solid teak wood along the entire second floor brings a truly distinctive and luxurious appearance.

Flat panel vanities, a free standing vessel tub, a floating shower bench, TOTO toilets and a frameless shower door create a spa-like feeling master bathroom. The contemporary wood finishing walk-in closets and integrated lights mounted inside the closet add function and beauty to the living space, and also provides innovative storage solutions. At the bottom floor, the extended decking area is spacious and allows some outdoor activities, such as mini golf, barbecuing and gardening.
