The Hawaii Wildlife Center has won one of only 21 national design awards selected by a jury of well known architects for Architecture magazine’s annual design review. The HWC won within the “Grow” category, which includes architecture related to Education, Science, and Healthcare; the HWC is one of only 4 award winning projects within this category.
All 21 projects were complimented for “clarity of intent” (“very clear statements about what their relationship is to their surroundings”) and “economy of means”, which is gratifying since those are such important ingredients of architecture, and especially difficult during these difficult economic times.
We are honored to be included with such amazing projects and are absolutely thrilled that our design team is getting the recognition they deserve. The HWC facility has more than exceeded our expectations and has allowed us to carry out our work, rescuing and rehabilitating native birds and bats from throughout the state.
