Modern Maui Zen


Posted By on Nov 6, 2018

This Modern Maui Zen space is peaceful and calming, located on the 5th floor of a 6 story building in downtown Wailuku. It is clean and contemporary yet warm and inviting, and while the walls are painted charcoal, it is not heavy or dark, though it is definitively masculine and sexy. The full-gut four-month renovation took it from 1992 to present day with a modern sensibility. Completely rewired to be a Smart Home, all lights and...

This 3 story condominium complex was built in 1974.  The original owner of this 600 sf unit had bought it then – and never changed a thing until selling it last year, allowing it to be a perfectly preserved time-capsule of that bygone era.  New owners saw potential while the commanding site on the beach drew them in.  They wanted to turn it into something more fitting of their modern lifestyle, and even though small, it is now...
