Energy Excelerator collaborates with startups to help them solve the world’s energy challenges. They needed their new downtown Honolulu space to encourage interaction between their organization and neighbors, visitors, and potential portfolio companies. VITAL worked closely with the project’s stakeholders to craft a flexible coworking environment that features custom furniture and millwork. Our observation of Hawaii as a place that honors the tradition of the exchange of the business card also led us to develop a wall map that allows anyone to leave his or her mark in the space. Overall, the space showcases the company’s breadth and reach within its community and serves as a hub to foster the growing Hawaiian energy community.

“VITAL worked with our stakeholders to discover how the new space could meet the needs of our program and enable growth. Beyond designing a really cool space, they helped us envision a headquarters fit for our entrepreneurs & build an innovation community.”
