I know nothing about architecture design, but when you see something done right, you recognize it. Check out this redesign done by Hawaii Architecture that keeps the original essence of the building but also infuses new technology and sustainable materials.
I love the the dark wood contrasted by the white walls – very dramatic. And to offset the darkness of the wood, translucent paneling allows for Hawaii’s sunlight to naturally brighten the rooms.
If you like what you see, help out the local Hawaii Architecture group as their design has been submitted to 3Form’s People’s Choice Best Installation Contest. Check out Entry #56 and lend this great design a much deserved vote.
Note: Yes, sadly, to vote in the contest, you need to create an account.
