Now listed for the first time, this colorful abode by design legend Ettore Sottsass offers the perfect excuse to say aloha to the Hawaiian life.
Designed by Italian architect and designer Ettore Sottsass, Casa Olabeunaga is a beautiful, vibrant home located in Maui, Hawaii. Commissioned by its current owners, Lesley Bailey—founder of jewelry and accessories brand ACME Studio—and her husband, Adrian Olabuenaga, the two-level abode is nestled on the top of a gently sloping 3,400-foot-high hill in Maui’s sought-after Kula district, and overlooks the Pacific Ocean, as well as four smaller islands.
Measuring at 2,748 square feet, the home features three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths, and is marked by colorful and unusual details such as arched doorways, totemic, custom shelving, a cartoonish staircase with an oversized bannister, and a series of wall-mounted metal rungs in the master suite.
The residence was completed in 1997 and is composed of a collage of abstract shapes with bold, contrasting colors.
