A modern luxury retreat exclusively placed at the top of Southern Maui. With the Raleigh and Chateau accreditation Padilla Designs assisted in the redesign of the grand entrance of the hotel.
We incorporated the natural patina flavor of corten steel into the architecture and weaved in through the entrance gates, select locations around the property including bathroom signage, room door tags and building sings. The corten material has a soft organic finish that is timeless and beautiful.
Weathering steel – often referred to as Corten steel, is a group of steel alloys developed to resist corrosion and eliminate the need for painting. Exposure to weather over time causes the material to form a natural rust-like surface layer, often giving it a wood-like appearance. Its unique look and naturally oxidizing finish has made it a popular choice for many architectural projects. Though Corten steel initially costs a bit more then other types of steel, due to the nature of the natural oxidization of corten steel, its life long maintenance is much cheaper as it does not require continual upkeep and eliminates the need for painting materials.
