The Cole Academy

The original Cole Academy opened in 2004 in the historic Yokohama Specie Bank building in the downtown Honolulu area. This day care/pre-school project featured a touch of modern interiors and the expansion of the historic preservation of the space. Pacific Atelier was also commissioned to provide design services for the Kunia and Kaimuki campus of The Cole Academy.

Pacific Atelier International ( PAI ) was founded in 1995 with a commission for a 17-story independent living facility resulting in numerous awards and recognition from the state and city for it’s contribution to our community’s seniors. Since then Pacific Atelier has grown into an internationally diverse firm with projects ranging from high-end residential homes to some of Hawaii’s most famous and highly visited facilities including the Maui Ocean Center, and the Dole Plantation’s New Store Expansion.

We believe that, because we do not try to superimpose an ideology of building or consistency of style thus imposing ourselves on our client, our “ways of understanding” and “ways of seeing” give us the methodology to address all aspects of architecture in their specificity no matter the scale or the budget.

Unlike the familiar image of unity of the machine, architecture for us retains the complexities of life with its continuous renewal of individual and collective aspirations.

We are Pacific Atelier.
