Honolulu Coffee Company

Honolulu, Hawaii

This upscale, European-style cafe is located in the Italianate-style Dillingham Transportation Building, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The space was previously a radio station, comprised of small rooms with low ceilings. A portion of the mezzanine floor above was removed to allow for a dramatic, two-story volume featuring "Tuscan" columns and a coffered tromp l'oeil ceiling. The entry was placed on a central axis with a new arched transom.

Originally called Café Vienna, the project won a Grand Award in the 1996 BIA Hawaii Renaissance competition.
