A Vintage Hawaiian Beach Cottage, Restored and Ready for Relaxation

When Brooklyn-based architect Roberto Sosa sent us photos of his renovated farmhouse in upstate New York, we were enamored. Recently we’ve been admiring another project Sosa sent our way, this one nearly 5,000 miles away in Paia, a bohemian surf town on Maui’s wild north coast.

The structure, designed by architect David Levitt in 1962, features a single-sided pitched roof that follows the exact slope of the hillside into which it’s built, resulting in architecture that feels deeply respectful of its environment. Equally impressive is Coppin’s thoughtful resuscitation of the house. When she and her husband purchased it in 2009,…
