In addition to plan changes, an effort was made to modernize the dwelling with new contemporary features and details so that the house could live well into the future and avoid becoming dated. Changing the guard rails to stainless steel cable not only modernized the house, but affords the owners even better views on Honolulu beyond. The addition of accented color walls is also a contemporary approach to design and one that really helps create visual connections between the new interactive spaces.
