2/2: Collaborative Studio engineered this house in Kaimukī to use 30 percent less lumber, strategically spacing out the studs and wood trusses. They raided Re-use Hawaii for reclaimed materials, including 2,000 square feet of Punahou School’s old gym floor, and they left much of the unfinished plywood exposed.

This is Lava Flow 1, aptly named for the lava field it is set amid, which Steely designed as a small, sparsely furnished outpost for himself and his family. Photo courtesy of @craigsteely.
