Title: Redefining Hawaii Urban Housing Affordability through Adaptive Reuse, Prefabrication, Lifecyle Building and Flexible Design
Authors: Nishio, Jennifer

Issue Date: May 2012
Abstract: Providing housing that is affordable in Hawaii is a complex and compounded problem. However,
most of the discussion around housing affordability solutions for Hawaii focuses around changes
in government regulations, subsidies, and land cost; not necessarily around the actual building
design.
This project proposes a method of providing quality, long-term housing in Hawaii that is
affordable, sustainable and desirable to inhabit by taking advantages of the construction cost
benefits achieved through adaptive reuse, prefabrication, lifecycle building, and flexible design.
The goal of this project is to encourage more sustainable urban housing in such a way that
extends a the usable life of Hawaii’s existing building stock and redefines Hawaii’s approach
toward providing housing that is affordable.Providing housing that is affordable in Hawaii is a complex and compounded problem. However,
