ABOUT

wai kahe - flowing water

Design and Planning for new builds and renovations 

 

We are committed to responsible design practices adapted to each project's needs. Ideas are brought to life in collaboration with trusted local tradespeople, artists, and makers. 

 

Building materials are selected in consideration of Hawaii's unique climate & environment. Reusable furnishings & materials are donated and recirculated into use wherever possible.

By drawing on global traditions in mindful design, our design ethos seeks to honor Hawaii's unique culture and landscape while promoting sustainable building practices.

Serving West Hawaii since 2018
