We are marking the 35th anniversary of the founding of WhiteSpace Architects this year. To celebrate, our principals Philip “Pip” White and Laura Ayers selected Maunalua Fishpond Heritage Center to receive 35 hours of pro bono architectural services.

Established in 2007, Maunalua Fishpond Heritage Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to preserve Honolulu’s last fishponds for community education.

At its request, WhiteSpace will provide professional architectural assistance with a framework for a strategic master plan with specific recommended actions, priorities and budgets to help the organization’s board of directors implement its vision.

We have also enlisted the help of Tommy Witten of PBR Hawaii (landscape/master planning), Clayton Hayes of Hayes Structural Design (structural engineering) and Colin Yoshiyama of Constructors Hawaii (general contractor), all of which will donate their hours to Maunalua Fishpond Heritage Center.

The 35 hours from WhiteSpace – in addition to the donated time from the project partners – will be used through the summer and fall 2019.

“Maunalua Fishpond Heritage Center is grateful to WhiteSpace Architects for its generosity and this terrific opportunity,” says Jeannine Johnson, board secretary of the Maunalua Fishpond Heritage Center. “We are gearing up for a capital campaign, and the work they have done conceptualizing our vision has been invaluable to our organization.”

“As we reviewed the applications after our March announcement of the donation program, Maunalua Fishpond Heritage Center stood out as a treasure that needs to be protected,” explains White. “Community service is part of my family lineage going back generations here in Hawaii, and giving back has become part of our company’s DNA.”
