Hawaii is known for its beautiful nature and pristine Pacific coastlines, and 'Anaha' is a new residential condo building that aims to visually mimic those properties. The building's primarily glass-covered facade undulates at different frequencies throughout the vertical expanse of the tower, making a clear comparison to the movement of the waves on the horizon.

The 'Anaha' complex consists of more than just a single tall tower, though. The wavy building might be the most striking from the outside, but the mid-rise building abutting it has perhaps more intriguing characteristics as far as those living there are concerned. It has a rooftop courtyard that features a large garden and a patio area with an infinity pool that extends over the edge of the building. That pool has a glass bottom that gives swimmers views of the ground below.
