The Administration and Allied Health Facility (AAHF) at the University of Hawaii West Oahu (UHWO) campus consists of a two-story 43,442-square foot learning and office facility. Designed by architecture firms Perkins+Wills and KYA Design, the newly constructed building features the gable roof style that draws upon the architecture of sugar mills that once dotted Oahu, while the exterior masonry incorporates angular patterns that recall those on kapa, or traditional Hawaiian bark cloth, while the expansive second floor lanai features architecturally designed wood slat ceilings. Prior to its construction, UHWO Human Resources and administrative staff were based off-campus until the AAHF building was completed. The new Administrative and Allied Health Facility now provides substantial office space to sustain the programs of the growing campus and a brand new facility that will foster the health sciences program for many years to come.
