This Hawaiian hotel is located in Waikiki and has been in operation since 1969. Creative agency OMFGCO was tasked with refurbishing the space and updating the establishment's branding. As a result, the Portland-based firm created a sleek and welcoming interior that is informed by the modern movement. The traditional flair of the mid-century was preserved, however.
Without a doubt, the Laylow Hotel was successfully brought to the standards of modern contemporary design. One of the major changes OMFGCO did was moving the lobby of the Hawaiian hotel to the second floor, creating a definite divide between the busy streets of Waikiki and guests. In addition, the whimsicality of the location induces cheerfulness through the mid-century furniture designs that are color-rich and texture-heavy.
