Renovated Homes Celebrated in AIA Honolulu Design Awards

Any quality renovation of a domestic space has to respect the structure and spirit of the original, while meeting the day-to-day needs of the new residents. Whether rehabilitating a Japanese-styled residence with flowing indoor and outdoor space or cleaning away the clutter in a simple, contemporary house for a young family, AIA Honolulu’s latest design awards are stamping “How we live now” on yesterday’s buildings; the surest way to preserve them for the future.

University of Hawaii-West Oahu in Kapolei, Oahu, Hawaii, designed by John Hara Associates Inc. Jury comments: [We] appreciate the design associated with grid intersections.  [It] provides place-markers for future references as West Oahu grows. Image courtesy of Franzen Photography.

Award of Excellence and the Jack C. Lipman, AIA, Members' Choice Award:

Seabury Hall Creative Arts Center in Makawao, Maui, Hawaii, designed by Flansburgh Architects. Jury comments: The barn-like design is appropriate to upcountry Maui.
