KAUAI ENTRANCE GATE
MELE O KE KAI
BRINGING THE VISION TO LIFE
This project was functional art at its finest. This entrance way challenged the team to bring a variety of techniques and finishing to the table. From the Hawaiian state fish (the Humuhumunukunukuapuaa) to the shell ginger flowers, countless hours of cutting, forming and etching went into creating the finished piece.
“Very simply that I loved working with Padilla designs. Sitting down with Larry expressing my ideas and having him design before my eyes was amazing. The group put so much heart and soul into the production of our gate. Every detail they implemented gave more dimension to the finished product. the group was so polite and fun upon install. I loved meeting all the members that did the work. It brought the experience full circle for me. I consider them family.”
Next – Launiopoko Estate
Nestled on the side of the mountain in Launiopoko Maui, this custom home is elaborate in detail and design. This project was truly all inclusive with a range of functional and decorative sculpture. From the main entry gates and custom column lights, to the fire and water features and custom ceiling sculptures, Padilla Designs transformed this beautiful home into a custom work of art.
