Classroom & Administration Building

Hanahau‘oli School

Honolulu, HI
Completed 2008

The project consisted of a classroom for 5th Graders, Administrative Offices and a Professional Development Center. The client’s wishes were to have a building that related in look, feel and scale to the existing campus while at the same time providing contemporary and fresh architectural features and building systems. Thus the building is a juxtaposition of old and new. The building has two “wings” that are more contemporary architectural forms yet have materials that fit appropriately with the context of the school campus. The main gabled portion features a covered lanai that overlooks the large interior courtyard or heart of school.
