The first major building constructed in Kapolei, this structure is simple, serene, and sturdy. Capped by a green tile, double-pitched hipped roof, it laid a solid design foundation for the much anticipated “second city.” Fronting on Kapolei Regional Park, the well-modulated facade of split-faced granite from Weymouth, Massachusetts, presents a dignified image of civic pride, accentuated by a centered, inset entrance lanai, and a cast-stone, third-story loggia. The lanai's rough slate floor transitions into a polished green slate–paved lobby, heralding the sedate koa-embellished interior.
The Campbell Estate Building's near mirror counterpart, the Kapolei Building (1993), also designed by Kober/Hansen/Mitchell Architects, runs parallel to and supports the main headquarters. A large, walled courtyard with delightful terraces, tropical plantings, waterfalls, and fountains, designed by the Honolulu-based planning and landscape architecture firm PBR Hawaii, sits between the two structures. The building complex has lost some of its initial punch as a multitude of similarly designed buildings have engulfed it.
