Rehab Hospital of the Pacific

The hospital that was the nexus of several storylines in the flash-sideways in Season 6 was the Nuuanu location of the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific (226 North Kuakini Street). Jack and Juliet worked there, and patients included Claire, Locke, Sun, and Sayid’s brother. Visitors included Kate, Sawyer, Sayid, Nadia, Helen, and David. The location was also used to portray the care home where Anthony Cooper lived (“The Candidate, Ep. 6×14). Continue reading Rehab Hospital of the Pacific

Kaaawa Valley

The broad, majestic Ko’olau mountain ridge seen in a memorable wide shot in the pilot episode (“Pilot,” Ep. 1×01) is viewed from Ka’a’awa Valley, also known as Kualoa Valley. The same view is revisited during the conversation between Jacob and the Man in Black during Season Six (“Ab Aeterno,” Ep. 6×09). The valley contains a number of iconic “LOST” locations.

Sacred Hearts Academy

One of the final scenes of “LOST,” in which most of the characters came together in the flash-sideways before “moving on” (Ep. 6×17, “The End”), was filmed inside the St. Margaret Mary Chapel at Sacred Hearts Academy (3253 Waialae Avenue) in Kaimuki. It was the same church where the “Lamp Post” station was hidden (Ep. 5×05, “This Place Is Death,” and Ep. 5×06, “316”). The grounds of Sacred Hearts Academy were used for several exterior shots in the same episodes. Continue reading Sacred Hearts Academy

Honolulu International Airport

The bustling arrivals and baggage claim area of Los Angeles International Airport was filmed at the Honolulu International Airport, in and around Baggage Claim F (lower level, east end). This includes the small office where Jack and Locke meet, the tunnel and skylight Kate sees as she flees the building, and the pickup area where Kate jumps into Claire’s taxi cab. Note that the customs station where Jin and Sun are stopped is a different location. Continue reading Honolulu International Airport

Waialua Sugar Mill

Mr. Eko’s Nigerian village (“The 23rd Psalm,” Ep. 2×10), and the spot where Sawyer and Cassidy planned their jewelry con (“The Long Con,” Ep. 2×13) were all filmed in historic Waialua town, anchored by the former Waialua Sugar Mill. The mill complex is now home to several specialty and industrial retailers. Continue reading Waialua Sugar Mill

Lehiwa Ridge Homes

The suburban home where Sawyer and Cassidy shacked up (“The Long Con,” Ep. 2×13) was played by model homes in Mililani Mauka (Lehiwa Dr.). Specifically, developer Castle & Cooke’s “American Classics” showcase “Residence 2” (living room and entry) and “Residence 6” (bedroom).

These are now private homes that have been restored and sold in the market by a huge value. This house was restored but basically just the exterior so the movie side would still be intact and an impact for the buyer which actually was looking for this house.  Almost all structural problems were solvable to some degree, but the more severe will impact on your ability to finance the project and insure the end result, and the exterior was managed by professionals by changing the roofing, the look of the curb appeal with the sidings and with professionals that know how to install hardie board to make it perfect as it was. Also the garden was renovated as it was a new place.

When it comes to this project, renovation is more akin to restoration than remodelling — that is to say, bringing something back to its original state, to reinvigorate and refresh. Remodelling, on the other hand, essentially refers to changing a building, perhaps through altering its layout or extending.

Of course what most owners of old houses end up doing is a combination of the two but with this one the restoration was the key— returning original features and the bare bones of the property to their former glory whilst playing around with the layout in order to make the house more suitable for modern-day living.
