Project Name:Kamehameha Schools Dormitories
Location:Honolulu, Hawaiʻi
Client:Kamehameha Schools Bernice Pauahi Bishop Estate

As with any project that is in need of renovation and revitalization, the landscape surrounding Kamehameha Schools Dormitories was completely overgrown. With care given to preserving certain species of plant material and removing of unwanted plant material, this once dark and weedy jungle was transformed into a pleasant, useable outdoor area for the students who reside there.

The goal of Kamehameha Schools was to plant Native Hawaiian species that are traditionally used in the Hawaiian culture, as a means to enrich the learning experience of all students. Fragrant and colorful flowers and ferns for lei making, fruit trees and taro for food, and native plant species were planted throughout this one acre project.
