Fashion designer house in Hawaii for sale

High fashion meets panoramic ocean views in an Oahu home for sale for $23 million.

In the house called “Casa di Alta Moda” or House of High Fashion, European, Japanese, American and Hawaiian influences are perfectly combined.

The mansion at 360 Puuikena Drive, Honolulu, Hawaii was designed by Jeff Long, a noted architect on the island. It is fully furnished with designer furniture from Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Cassina, Mies Van der Rohe, Tresserra and more.

“Honolulu perfectly blends Japanese and American culture,” the designer-retailer stated in home marketing material. “I wanted to emphasize this in the interior design of this house. The fusion of these two cultures is what fascinates me. Modernism … has its roots in Japanese minimalism, and various parts of Japanese modern architecture were heavily influenced by Western architects such as Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright.

The owners, who spoke on the condition of anonymity for this article, are selling the residence because they are moving back to the East Coast, according to Yvienne Peterson of the agency, who is listing the home along with Brad Kaneshire of List Sotheby’s International Realty. .

The five-bedroom, six-bathroom home, which sits at 8,795 square feet on half an acre, has been “gutted” and will be completely renovated in 2022, according to the property listing.

The private gated residence offers “impeccable European execution,” according to the agency.

These finishes include automatic German metal shutters on doors and windows for a “lock and go lifestyle”; the Snaidero kitchen designed by Pininfarina, the Ferarri design company; Snaidero wardrobes and bedrooms; Molteni & Dada cabinets with the work of skilled craftsmen; Spinneybeck leather walls; and Limestone Company stairs and walls.

“No expense has been spared to make this an extraordinary property,” the listing reads.

“We first toured the house with architect Jeff Long when it was being built and thought it was the most fabulous place,” owner Robb told Report. “A lot of it was incredible and the views were crazy. We bought it in a few days. After Covid-19, we gutted the house and remodeled everything. He was well built and great boned. Now it’s completely up-to-date and beautiful.”

The house is bright and has a somewhat minimalist design, but each room is carefully furnished and purposefully decorated.

“I wanted the house to be modern and not trendy,” said the owner-designer. “I chose a classic that will never go out of style as a backdrop for fun and vibrant art. All furniture is a mid-century modern classic or a modern classic that combines Japanese elements in the design.

This property is the second most expensive listing in the area, according to The Agency.

“Although this is the second highest priced home in the area, the cost of the remodel, the labor, the design, the luxury materials brought in, the exclusive items that were created especially for this home, and the reputable contractors that were used on site for the remodel, it everything to justify the cost of this house,” Peterson, the listing agent, said in an email response to the Sacramento Bee.

On the grounds of the estate there is an infinity pool with salt water and a large pool terrace. Inside, two floors are served by a pneumatic elevator.

“Living in Hawaii is a true paradise and the ocean views are rejuvenating for the soul,” said the seller. “I spend so much time in Paris that the influence of Western design naturally blended with the lightness of Hawaii. As a designer, I wanted to bring all these other elements into an Omakase-style home that would combine history, art and fashion.”
