The Myers Corporation
Project Size:13,409 SF
Awards:1997 Honolulu AIA Award of Merit
The design intent was to be clean and simple, leaning toward Art Deco and Art Moderne architecture, while providing a proper setting for the Corporation’s collection of contemporary art and development projects.
Materials and details used throughout the building were incorporated into the final design. The elliptical shape of the window wall fins appears in the Reception desk, along with textured stainless steel. The same “fin” motif is used in the secretarial station, but now in the metallic paint finish of the building. A piano key light motif that runs from the Reception area through the acutely angled presentation corridor mirrors the ground floor covered walkway. Plain-sliced Anigre veneers, beige and green limestone, and green slate, used throughout the public areas and lobbies of the bank, appear here in selected areas.
