Project Description:

The Navy Hawaii Regional Housing Privatization Project consists of roughly 2,000 units in five family housing sites surrounding Pearl Harbor. The solution for three of the five sites involved total demolition and redevelopment, while the other two sites required major renovations. In every case, site planning and architectural designs were chosen to encourage neighborly interaction and promote a sense of community so important to the transient lifestyles of military families. Also, designs were created to blend with the island architectural styles and respond to local climate conditions. As many as 20 different plans in single-family and duplex configurations, each with three or four elevation variations, were created to meet the program requirements and provide streetscape diversity. The plans range from relatively simple three-bedroom homes for enlisted men and women to larger homes with more amenities for higher-ranking officers. Each single-family plan has four variations of garage placement to allow for unique site conditions and to help avoid magnificent mature trees.
