New AHL Office
Architects Hawaii (AHL) embraced innovation and change in the 21st century with the design of their new office. Located in the Pacific Guardian Center, a LEED® Silver building, the new office emphasizes the firm in its entirety by locating all employees on one floor. Within 17,000 SF, AHL created an open and collaborative work environment that encourages interaction and the use of team workspaces instead of cubicles and individual rooms. Casual group meeting areas are located throughout the office forming a more active atmosphere. Several sustainable strategies are utilized including natural and energy efficient lighting along with eco-friendly furniture and finished.
Shaping not only how people work but also live, the office features a full kitchen, a sleep room, shower, a recycling program, and a sustainable drinking fountain that tracks the number of plastic bottles diverted from landfills.
