About the Laniākea facility

Laniākea literally translated means 'open skies' or 'wide horizons.' This name is well-suited given both the open-air design of the building, and our mission of opening doors for women. The open-air corridors, courtyard and pool provide a Hawaiian sense of respite within the bustling business district of downtown Honolulu. Laniākea is home to an era of tremendous social awareness and change in Hawai‘i. Its history inspires generations of women to rededicate themselves to the cause of community service. Laniākea was designed by renowned female architect, Julia Morgan. Ms. Morgan is best known for designing Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California. She was the first female architect to design a public building on O‘ahu. Ms. Morgan designed over 700 buildings in her career and listed Laniākea among her top 10 favorite projects.
