Our Specialty

The design of Contemporary Hawaiian Architecture with strong indoor – outdoor relationships.

The choice of living on Maui has a lot to do with loving the outdoors, the all-year around perfect climate and stunning ocean vistas.

That is also why we are often asked to design residences that take advantage of the natural environment and we love doing just that, creating homes for in- and outdoor living. When you dream of your perfect home on Maui what do you see? Are you lounging at your infinity pool and enjoying the sunset? Or do you like cooking as much as eating and you see yourself entertaining your friends or family?

It is our goal to create what you envision within the chosen environment.

We have a humble approach towards architecture and design, an “EGO-LESS” architecture that develops from the needs of our clients and their way of living.

We thrive

on creating details that will compliment and enhance the lifestyles of our clients.
