Keawala`i Congregational Church
Floor Restoration

Makena, Kaeo, Maui, Hawai`i

The new alter.The design of a new floor within one  of Hawaii's oldest native Hawaiian churches required special adjustments, when sensitive cultural remnants were discovered under the 84 year old floor being replaced. The structure supporting the new native Ohia hardwood floor had to be raised four inches to avoid damaging the historic materials below.

 Oval church steps.This left one of the church entry doors with insufficient headroom. ARCHITECTS MAUI adjusted the layout with a graceful stair leading to the door well.

The congregation testifies that the new floor also improved the acoustics.

This project won the Mayor's Award of the Maui Historical Society.


(Donations are being taken at Keawala'i Church, 190 Makena Road, Makena, Kihei, Maui, Hawai'i, 96753, for a new Church Office Building being planned by the congregation.)
