W Hotel

Honolulu, Hawaii

The former Colony Surf Hotel, located at the foot of Diamond Head, suffered from years of heavy use and neglect, which had left the building in a dilapidated condition. Zoning regulations limited the scope of alterations due to its non-conforming status.

 

Renovations were carefully planned, incorporating new finishes and upgrading the building systems. The design scheme created a simple, elegant backdrop for warm, tropical furniture and artwork in a "contemporary-Balinese" motif. Renovations were completed for approximately $60 per square foot.

 

The project won the Overall Grand Award in the Commercial category in the 1998 BIA Hawaii Renaissance competition.
