Weather on the Big Island of Hawaii

If you were to describe the weather on the Big Island in one word, it could only be the word “diverse.” With a wide variety of landscapes, cultures, and climate zones, the Big Island has something for everyone. It is estimated that there are over 18 climate zones worldwide—on the Big Island of Hawaii you can experience 16 of them! Did you know that you can ski on Mauna Kea during the late fall or winter months? Recommended only for the courageous and experienced skier, this is one of the many attractions that draw both visitors and adventurers to the Big Island. Ka'u, at the southern end of the island has a desert, but don't expect to see huge stretches of blowing sand—instead, you will find an open landscape of lava and low brush punctuated by magnificent mountain ranges in the background and gorgeous ocean views with occasional black sand beaches for exploration, if you care to go “off road.” In short, the Big Island of Hawai'i has a bounty of weather and environments for you to enjoy: rain forests, fern forests, pine and eucalyptus forests, high mountain pastures, lush tropical valleys, coastal beaches, wet or dry conditions. If you arenÙt enjoying the weather where you are, hop in the car and within a relatively short distance you can be relaxing at the beach, sightseeing in the horse country of Waimea, or watching the hot molten lava spill from the Kilauea volcano.      
 While the weather here is often unpredictable, we still follow the basic seasonal pattern experienced on the mainland. Winter here can be “winter-like”, especially at the higher elevations, yet because of our diversity of climates, many a Christmas has been celebrated on the beaches of Hawai'i. We are influenced by major weather patterns such as El Nino and El Nina, so we experience both years where the average rainfall is less than expected, or years when it is exceeded. Weather conditions can change in short distances as elevation or proximity to major topographical influences (such as coastal areas or the “saddle” between Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa), have their impact. Mother nature is alive and well here, and that is certainly part of the excitement and attraction of being on the Big Island.

Zak Architecture created a crisp and clean symmetrical plan in their signature contemporary Hawaiian style, as the Douglas Durkin Design team simultaneously developed the rich color palate of the finest architectural and interior design materials. The firm of Metzler Contracting was engaged to bring together these varying materials and concepts to create this singularly beautiful home. The Owners have wonderful taste and communicated the desire to build a home that captures the look and feel of the Big Island and its culture. Some of the finest craftspeople in the United States were called upon to create bespoke furnishings, to include the exquisite hand tufted silk and wool carpets from V’Soske of New York, hand printed fabrics produced by Pintura Studios of New York, custom designed and carved plantation teak beds, bedside tables, coffee tables, and outdoor suites of furniture produced by Warisan of Indonesia, Tom Sellars Woodworking and Luis Rossi of San Francisco, and the sophisticated custom hanging light fixture by Aqua Creations. New York artist Nancy Lorenz was commissioned to create a magnificent series of five lacquer wall panels for the Great Room, in rough hewn wood and layers of lacquer and gold to emulate the sea. These are complimented by two large scale transparent teak wood screens used as room dividers. This is a very special home in a very special place, executed with an extraordinary vision, level of quality and attention to detail.
