Ewa Village
Honolulu, Hawaii

Located on a 15 acre site in the Ewa Plain across the bay from Pearl Harbor, Honolulu, this 192 unit affordable family housing project employs a courtyard housing design. Each unit entry is located off a semi-public enclosed courtyard where small children can play in a safe secure area that is visible from the unit kitchens. Careful orientation of the site design develops neighborhoods along an auto and pedestrian circulation system that provides convenient access from the parking areas to the unit, and a private zone around the bedroom areas. The project elevations are designed with a Hawaiian style utilizing indigenous building forms and materials including metal corrugated roofing and windows with large openings to let the trade winds bring a cooling breeze thru the unit.
