Architects Hawaii to build new art space at St. Andrews Priory

Architects Hawaii Ltd. (AHL) is currently working on one of their newest 1% projects for 2014 – collaborating with the St. Andrews Priory School for Girls in achieving their vision for a new art facility. Through their 1% Program, AHL is providing pro bono architectural services for this renovation that will benefit the Upper School art classes and workshops.

“We are transforming the school’s ‘shower house,’ into a light-filled, inspiring space that will spark the creativity of the Priory students,” said Bettina Mehnert, AHL CEO.

The 1,000-square-feet wood building was originally built in 1954 as a shower facility for the PE students. The space has become storage for the campus located in Honolulu.
