Two Architects Hawaii Ltd. (AHL) projects were recently recognized nationally: Windward Community College Library Learning Commons and the Towers at Kuhio Park.
AHL received recognition for Outstanding Design in the August 2013 American School & University Educational Interiors Showcase for Windward Community College Library Learning Commons. The Commons is an example of 21st century education design, featuring open collaborative spaces that allow both team and individual styles of learning. Sustainability is key to the new library, waterless urinals, storm water collection and reuse, photovoltaic panels, energy-efficient lights and non-toxic materials made from recycled or rapidly renewing resources were key to this green building.
