Kamehameha School’s Kawaihao Plaza
The renovation of the Kawaiaha‘o Plaza included various projects within both the Mauka and Makai buildings. As the Head Offices for Kamehameha Schools, an analysis of existing staffing and spatial needs was conducted by Architects Hawaii to determine appropriate planning and interior design solutions.
The design team redesigned public spaces to provide a gathering place for the Kamehameha staff, students, faculty and guests, made improvements to the lobby, and converted an old Gold’s Gym into a 14,700 SF office. Challenges included creating an innovative and aesthetically appropriate design on a limited budget.
