A Voyage of Design
RIM provided concept designs for KIRC to use to receive financing and approvals. This 20,000 SF facility is designed with the Hawaiian culture as a centerpiece, complete with central community spaces, a cultural museum and collaborative office spaces. The building will facilitate educational, administrative, exhibition, and operational functions associated with the island of Kaho`olawe, along with activities supporting Native Hawaiian cultural practice. Specific uses within the proposed center include offices, a historical and interactive exhibit about Kaho`olawe Island, meeting spaces, classrooms, a visitor center, gift shop, and café. The proposed project will also include the development of an outdoor performance/gathering area, plant nursery, exterior interactive exhibits, parking and related improvements.
