Global architecture and design firm, Perkins+Will was recently selected by the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) to design eight stations for the fourth and final phase of the Honolulu Rail Transit project. The elevated rail will span 20 miles and is expected to carry more than 115,000 passengers per weekday, facilitating transit-oriented design to support the expected 200,000 person increase in Honolulu’s population by the year 2030.
“Perkins+Will’s approach to transit design is focused on enhancing the passenger experience, with accessible and inviting stations” said Director of Transportation Design Jeff Doble, AIBC, LEED AP. “Our projects stand out because we consciously work to integrate the designs into the fabric of each community.”
“Many clients are interested in having some kind of iconic design within the stations,” said San Francisco office Managing and Design Director Peter Busby, FAIA, LEED AP. “We are successful because we create distinctive architecture for our transit clients. Our projects attract users and serve to make their lives and their travel experiences interesting and comfortable.”
