Strengthening Collaboration for Housing Renovation
K&G Architects is a Hawaii-based architecture firm, specializing in providing ground-breaking design and environmentally responsible solutions to complex issues. Their strength lies in integrating natural day-lighting, natural ventilation and green building materials into the architectural projects to enhance the environmental quality of the space and reduce energy consumption. K&G Architects actively and excitedly collaborated with BluEnt to renovate famous Hilton’s seven star Lagoon Towers in Hawaii.
BluEnt Steps In
The project was ambitious but necessary: to renovate the famous Hilton’s seven star Lagoon Towers. K&G Architects collaborated with BluEnt to develop the sketches and create Revit model out of them. The greatest challenge of this project was to make the as-built drawings by our team in absence of the old digital drawings of Hilton. K&G Architects provided sketches and measurements from their site visits along with site photographs, which form the majority of input materials for the project.
The broad objective of the project was renovation of a resort while providing existing and proposed design of multiple room types. Our designer came up with design options based on their spatial needs and aesthetic style. With the frequent communication between client and BluEnt designer, the model of the project went through multiple changes.
- Making the existing layouts with the help of sketches and site pictures which were mostly noncomprehensive
- BluEnt modeled the project from scratch in Revit
- Making the proposed layouts of multiple room types
- Coming up with schedule for floor types, door/ windows, wall finish etc
- Constant communication with the client to make the several changes required during the project
- Quality drafting work at very reasonable and competitive cost
- Increase in documentation speed with the support of overnight drafting service
- Detailed Revit modeling eased and accelerated the renovation process
- Usage of Revit parametric families
K&G created an aesthetically pleasing resort and BluEnt feels proud to be part of this. Once again we were assured that for a project of this scale, collaboration was the key.
