We assist you in formulating a design for your home that fits your needs, desires, and budget. We take pride in our ability to listen carefully to your thoughts so they are reflected in the completed home.
With the number and diversity of microclimates in Hawai`i, there are many factors we take into account when designing the perfect home. Sun and wind exposure, views, and the building site's slope are all important considerations. We work with existing topography to minimize grading and the need to import fill, so our homes lie 'lightly on the land.' We introduced "sustainable" design long before the concept was popularized.
Navigating the county building permitting process can be a daunting task. The Maui Architectural Group team has the experience and expertise to successfully manage this aspect of the project on your behalf.
We offer an initial consultation at no charge. Several levels of service, with an accompanying range of fee structures, will then be presented to you for consideration. From additions and renovations to home design from the ground up, we at Maui Architectural Group greatly value the trust and confidence our clients have placed in us over the decades of service to our Island community.
Maui Architectural Group has woven 'sustainable design' components into its designs long before the concept was popularized. Currently we have trained sustainable design experts on staff and several LEED registered projects are in process, and a LEED Accredited Professional consultant is available if certification of your project is desired.
We work with existing topography to minimize manipulation of the building site so our homes lie "lightly on the land." Here in Hawaii we have a unique opportunity to live within the environment not struggle against it. Consequently we orient our designs to maximize natural ventilation as much as possible
utilize breezeways to enhance air flow
and carefully select materials free of toxic chemicals that are appropriate for our many micro-climates.
Alternative energy creation in the form of photovoltaic systems, wind machines or small hydroelectric generators has been employed in our designs. We also offer rainwater harvesting and storage system designs to collect some of the purest water on the planet. Complete self sustaining off-the-grid homestead planning and design services are also available from our experienced staff.
There are many other techniques and technologies inherit in our work. Please feel free to contact us for further discussion in this constantly evolving field.
Selection of an architect is a very personal matter. The relationship that is built through the design and construction of a project, be it a home or commercial building, can be quite rewarding since this process is often a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We are proud of the enduring friendships we share with many former clients. We invite you to call for an appointment or simply to discuss your project in greater depth. Of course any website can only represent a small portion of our complete portfolio. We would be pleased to forward further information to assist in your selection of an architect.
