Maui Land and Pineapple Headquarters

-A A +A
1971, Wimberly Allison Tong and Goo. 120 Kane St.

Sequestered from the outside world behind a masonry perimeter wall, the corporate headquarters of Maui's fourth-largest private landowner enjoys a serenely intimate privacy. A complex of three single-story, frame buildings is set in a lush garden courtyard with an inviting, low-ceilinged, flat-roofed walkway connecting the buildings. An ancient stone and a rock-lined dry pool establish secondary foci away from the buildings, adding to the dynamic interplay of buildings, walkway, and garden. Double-pitched hipped roofs with wide overhangs provide shade for the offces' full-height windows, reinforcing the shelter-vista dialogue and instilling a sense of spatial harmony. Maui Pineapple was initially formed as a subsidiary of Alexander and Baldwin to handle the company's pineapple operations on Maui. In 1969, this company formally separated from its parent company to become Maui Land and Pineapple.
