    Default Craig Steely's Lavaflow 2 house

    Architect Craig Steely pays close attention to nature when it comes to designing structures. He has to, since his modern home designs on the Big Island in Hawaii share space with lava flow.
    Steely, an architect based out of San Francisco and Hawaii whose work has been featured in such publications as Dwell, Sunset, and the New York Times, was awarded recognition by the San Francisco chapter of the American Institute of Architects for this home. His passion for Hawaii's very particular landscape is apparent in his comment in a New York Times article that "The volcano is so immediate and fresh . . . You're constantly reminded how fragile life is."
    While the proximity of lava flow would be a little too jarring for some homeowners' comfort, I recognize the attraction and thrill of living near it. The alien landscape of volcanic rock makes this steel-framed home all the more fascinating in appearance. Hovering on a cliff that overlooks the ocean, this 1,400-square-foot-home is wrapped in glass on all sides, allowing residents to take advantage of the gorgeous, otherworldly views. The interiors take cues from the landscape, with red-and-orange tiling muscularly wrapping a curved wall in the bathroom and limited furnishings echoing the minimalist exterior vegetation

    I like the IDEA of it, but I don't like the actual house.

    Now around the lava flow areas of the Big Island..this would be a good place for a very well done and well built mobile home. You could just move it when it was threatened.

    i really like the outside.
    the inside i like, minus the coffee table, the kitchen chairs and the crappy sculpture outside. and i would have gone with tiles in another colour. i don't like orange in big doses.
