2113 Kalakaua

Waikiki, Hawaii

Waikiki, Hawaii is a destination recognized internationally for its beautiful beaches and extraordinary shopping experience.  Limited commercial space and special design district create a unique design challenge when combined with the ever evolving demands of retail clients.  2113 Kalakaua was a prime retail location whose existing architecture was unremarkable.  Budget and time constraints necessitated the adaptive reuse of the existing structure.  By reconfiguring the tenant spaces, maximizing store front glazing, and developing a restrained yet stunning terracotta cladding system, a highly desirable boutique retail experience was created.
