New to Market – FLOAT Off Grid Art Farm

It’s such a thrill when an architect or a designer lists their property for sale. Often when designing for their own property, they will take risks and make experimental choices almost as if they were prototyping a design language. The FLOAT Off Grid Art Farm really does feel as though the owners looked upon their wild 15 acres of gently rolling guava and rose apple forests as a blank canvas. Over time, they’ve fleshed out a magnificent work of multi media art by carefully adding in structural brushstrokes, each iteration with its own character and serving a unique purpose. For a deep dive into this property, see the listing link HERE, and my full article HERE.

This property is listed by Island Sotheby’s International Realty and special thanks to listing agents Linda Briske and Maeghan Pocock for assisting me with access.

First Brushstroke: The Main House

This pop of sculpture features great movement in the angles and colors to take your eyes on a wild ride. With a butterfly roof catching water, and flying glass garage doors throughout, the house offers a multi-use interior that can transform from a giant entertaining space, to an intimate office and cozy sleeping quarters.

Fleshing Out the Painting with Textures of the Outdoors

The gardens of Hawaii offer limitless opportunities to get cozy with the planet. There’s nothing like bare feet in the warm grass on a sun drenched Haiku afternoon. (I know this location well since I lived just down the street for 24 years!). Here at the Art Farm, there is so much to explore — a Modpools Shipping Container Swimming pool! There’s also an outdoor living room sheltered from the Tradewinds and featuring incredible custom concrete cooking and entertaining kitchen.

Industrial Textures in the background

Who doesn’t love a Quonset hut that has had an injection of light and creativity converting it from a dark wartime era architectural oddity into a multi-use workshop, art studio, office, and home theatre? A great re-purposing of existing architectural technology!
