Slaughterhouse Beach House in Hawaii by Olson Kundig

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

Located close to a well-known surfing spot, Slaughterhouse Beach House expands the concept of a traditional surfing hut with three connected huts—general living quarters, guest suites, and a main sleeping area. The huts’ corrugated metal roofs take their inspiration from traditional Hawaiian roofs (as popularized by the architect C. W. Dickey), which help to naturally ventilate the islands’ indigenous structures. Studies of the site revealed virtually constant winds. Using the Dickey-style roof as a starting point, the design was turbocharged, deliberately shaping roof forms and openings to allow breezes to pull hot air out.

The slender steel frame supports walls of varying opacity; from nothing, to glass, to screen, to solid – creating a laminate of materials tempering the expansive view overlooking the Hamakua coastline on the eastern slope of Mauna Kea on Hawaii’s Big Island.

Island Residence in Honolulu, Hawaii by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

Article source: The American Institute of Architects (AIA)

Situated on the Ocean’s coastline at a corner of an ancient fishpond, this private residence reflects the culture of the Hawaiian Islands by embracing its lush surroundings. The clients sought a modern expression that drew inspiration from their Japanese heritage, without being overly imitative or contrived. This influence is often subtle, manifesting itself through an attention to detail, an affinity for craftsmanship, and a delight in natural materials.

Article source: LarsonO’Brien

JAMESTOWN, NY – A historic retrofit project on some of the most hallowed ground in the United States, the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard, was recently completed with the installation of 1,700 custom, handcrafted steel windows from Hope’s®.

The design-build project was the work of Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Hawaii to retrofit the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard/Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PHNSY/IMF) Building 155–with the mandate to maintain the structure’s historic window features.

Hope’s, widely regarded for customizing its hot-rolled steel windows to virtually any design vision, went one step further and literally created a new product line for Building 155: the Hope’s ONE55™SERIES Steel Windows.

Waikiki Shopping Plaza in Hawaii by EeStairs America Inc.

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

Article source: EeStairs America Inc.

Along a coastal main street in southern Honolulu, Hawaii, a large shopping plaza is remodeling its three, street level entryways that access its underground shops. As specified in the original design, all balustrades are curved as each staircase has flare characteristics, which in turn, gives the openings a complimentary circular nature.

Kona Residence in Hawaii by Belzberg Architects

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

Article source: Belzberg Architects

Nestled between cooled lava flows, the Kona residence situates its axis not with the linearity of the property, but rather with the axiality of predominant views available to the site.  Within the dichotomy of natural elements and a geometric hardscape, the residence integrates both the surrounding views of volcanic mountain ranges to the east and ocean horizons westward.
