Here at Kukui‘ula, the quintessential Plantation style home has long been a favorite among residents. These beloved homes symbolize the melting pot of cultures that came to the islands during the early decades of the 20th century. Originally built to house workers in sugarcane and pineapple plantation communities and early residents of Hawaiian homesteads, this style of home became known as Hawaiian plantation architecture. Defining features of these early family dwellings included wide-hipped roofs, exposed beams, airy living spaces, and large covered lanai.

Today, architects have elevated these charming homes with the use of modern building materials, energy-efficient technologies, and rich features that fit contemporary living. Traditional details seamlessly blend with modern amenities. Great rooms, high exposed beam ceilings, chef-inspired kitchens, finely crafted details, and comfortable outdoor spaces are hallmarks of the modern interpretation of these classic homes.
