Waialae Country Club

The Clubhouse
Recipient of the 2012 BIA Renaissance Grand Award Commercial Remodeling Projects: More than 15,001 Sq. Ft.

Waialae Country Club's newly renovated Clubhouse has a contemporary island concept utilizing earth tone colors and natural materials.   The prevalent use of Ohia, Koa and natural stone into the interior design of the Clubhouse is our way of honoring the unique and rich culture and natural resources of the Hawaiian Islands.

Wood grilles are finished with a veneer of Ohia and columns are wrapped in black granite which align the public corridors and unify the three main function rooms. The carpet seen throughout the Clubhouse is based on an 18th Century Kapa, bark cloth, pattern from the Bishop Museum Collection. Our Hawaiian Ancestors used Kapa to make sleep coverings and clothing. This pattern could have easily been used on kapa cloth as a wrap around a skirt or shoulder garment.
