Wheeler Fleming Residence
Scope of work included the complete demolition of existing house structure and construction of a new custom home. New residence consisted of three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, an open living, dining room and kitchen plan. Also included new two car garage with laundry and mud room.
This extensive Kailua remodel reflects the owners’ very casual style of living and very relaxed style of entertaining. The original ceiling heights were raised to a spacious 9’0” and the new garage was detached to open up the structures for improved cross ventilation and air movement. The living room anchors the interior between the kitchen and dining space, as well as visually connecting the front yard and porch to the rear yard and covered lanai. The master suite is tucked into the rear yard and a small garden between the suite and outdoor lanai provides a reflective indoor/outdoor relationship. Materials blend into the neighborhood and include board and batten siding, travertine floors in the kitchen and bathrooms, Eucalyptus wood flooring, African mahogany cabinets and casework and wood trims throughout the house.
This project was a Grand Award Winner in the 2009 BIA Renaissance Awards in the Residential Remodeling Projects from $500,000 category.
