AURA House by Olson Kundig

A hidden gem in Kapalua, Hawaii.

By //Design

Sitting atop a rocky bluff on a private peninsula in Kapalua, Hawaii, lies the AURA, which boasts breathtaking West Maui views of Honolua Bay and Mokule’ia Bay with the ocean on one side, mountains on the other, and plenty of lush, tropical vegetation surrounding. Not your average island home, AURA was designed by Seattle-based architecture and design firm Olson Kundig and was formerly owned by renowned photographer Peter Lik who transformed the quaint beach home into a livable work of art. The residence is split into three connected homes — one for the main living quarters, one for the three bedrooms, and one for guests, with natural Brazilian hardwood decks outside.

The AURA house is now being listed for $19.8 million USD at Sotheby’s.
