Hawaii Kai, Oahu 2012-2013
The designer of this Oahu home in the Hawaii Kai neighborhood took full advantage of the Padilla Designs capabilities. From a sweeping spiral staircase and a hibiscus ceiling sculpture, to a volcano fire feature and butterfly pedestrian gate, our work is woven throughout the property to add beauty, ambiance and function.
Spiral Staircase and Bamboo Railings
Signature Copper Bamboo
Railings and banisters are an integral part of any property and when done right can add beauty and architectural elements that harmonize with the surrounding atmosphere. Our copper bamboo is a perfect blend of structure and beauty. Finished with a bronze and verdigris patina the finish is organic and timeless.
The curvature of the exterior staircase was especially challenging, as everything needed to be fabricated in pieces and then welded in place. Each vertical baluster was TIG-welded in place, then sanded and finished with our signature bronze and verdigris patina application.
Volcano Fire Feature
The volcano fire sculpture was really important to the client, as she wanted to create a unique ambiance for after dinner relaxing, as well as a conversation piece. Fully automated with electronic automation, the volcano and the tiki torches can be operated with the push of a button. Each of her tiki torches represent a Hawaiian flower that that also grows throughout her property.
Next – Honu Lani Estate

Padilla Designs was commissioned for an estate design project that incorporated custom fabricated teak, brass, and copper gates, unique banisters in a wave pattern that complimented the ocean views, and a “peek a boo” window that added privacy to an outdoor shower while allowing an ocean and sunset view.
