Designer Erin Moore of FLOAT architecture research and design built the Outside House in a sprawling area of Maui outside of the city’s reaches. Her client’s family had been regular visitors to the site since the 1960s, and the construction was built to reflect this patient and tender relationship with the land. In the first of the two platforms, an enclosed bedroom looks toward the laval flow; the second raised platform offers an open kitchen and deck that looks out towards the Pacific Ocean and the nearby island of Kahoolawe. A span of nature thrives between the platforms, with shrubbery sprouting from the cracks of solidified lava and native trees holding tight to their soil. Moore says, “The Outside House is intended to demonstrate the client’s eco-centric worldview, a perspective that is rooted in the Hawaiian concept of aloha aina—love of the land”.
