American Savings Bank - Kalihi Branch
Although only 2800 sf, this new building for American Savings Bank makes a statement on a prominent corner in Kalihi. Modern architectural forms paired with traditional cladding materials give this new branch a striking presence on King Street.
The unique butterfly roof gives the building a very recognizable form, and allowed high clerestory windows to create a bright and open lobby space. To keep the shape of the roof line clean and minimal, mechanical equipment typically installed on the roof was hidden on interior mechanical mezzanines. The inverted slopes of the roof also allowed dozens of solar panels to be installed, out of sight from the street level.
