HAWAII THEATRE CENTER HISTORIC EXTERIOR RENOVATION
Following Hawaii Theatre’s renovation of its historic 1920’s interior by Hardy, Holzman, Pfeiffer Associates (New York), and several years of additional fundraising, Ferraro Choi was commissioned to design the renovation of the theatre’s historic exterior. The work included reconstruction of the 1930’s neon marquee and vertical “HAWAII” blade sign to meet the requirements of the State Historic Registry. State-of-the-art LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology was incorporated into the new marquee to enhance theatre marketing. Using advanced computer lighting software, exterior lighting and building colors were studied and modeled by Lincolne Scott Hawaii, engineering and lighting consultants to Ferraro Choi.
