Four luxury homes in Makena, Maui, 2014-2015
Value in Functional Art
Makena Sunset is a luxury development in Makena Maui. The developer designed and built four custom homes for the luxury housing market. The Padilla Designs team was hired to help the properties be unique and different by incorporating functional metal sculpture. We designed the front fencing, entrance and service gates, balcony and wall guard railings, tiki torches and pool railings.
Balcony and Wall Railings
The ocean front balconies were a perfect location for our signature brass wave guard railing design. Fabricated from solid brass these railings were installed above the water proof membrane by concealing an internal stainless steel structure underneath the concrete and tile flooring.
Utility Gates and Privacy Paneling
The propane and trash enclosures needed a solid design that was non intrusive and would weather beautifully. The woven copper design was customized for these utility gates. We carried this design for the privacy paneling that runs in between the houses separating the pools.
”I knew I needed to add something to the project that would increase the marketability by adding unique features. I soon learned that the Hawaiian culture and its concepts could be translated into beauty through the design of quality metals. Padilla Designs not only provided the proper metals for the project they contributed the concepts, colors, shapes, sizing, layout and installation all combined with superior craftsmanship.”
