When you first see the main focal point of the Kona Residence by Belzberg Architects, you probably won't think it is a home. The center opening piece of this home is a 3D abstract-circular installation like those you'd see in art galleries.

The Kona Residence by Belzberg Architects is located among cooled lava flows. Geometric and modern in design, the exterior of the Hawaii home is made out of recycled teak timber and train tracks.

Implications - This environmentally futuristic home is fueled by alternate sources such as two separate arrays of photovoltaic panels mounted on the roof and the pool is heated via solar radiation. Throughout the property, rain water is collected and redirected to three dry wells which are recycled and cleverly refresh the water supply.
