Green Sand Inc. wins Grand Award at the BIA-Hawaii 23rd Annual BIA Renaissance Building and Remodeling Awards 2008
Great Spaces: The conversion of a ground floor office space into a contemporary showroom, with maximum street visibility for furniture system displays and corporate offices, faced many challenges. Not a single wall was perpendicular to another and a large flexible open floor plate was created to showcase the versatility and mobility of the furniture. Existing entry doors and walls were replaced with a frameless glass entry and a single large pivoting frameless door to increase views into the space from the street. A combination of high output ultra efficient fluorescent tube lighting fixtures and warm high intensity discharge spot lights on a modern track system cast a museum quality lighting level on the furniture. This light and modern design is a visual surprise along the downtown streetscape and yet comfortably exists within the heavy Romanesque stonework of the historic McCandless Building.
