Daniel Ruark, Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Kailua, HI
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsOctober 23, 2016
Aaron Green could not have asked for a more worthy heir than Daniel Ruark, just as Frank Lloyd Wright could not have asked for a more worthy heir than Aaron Green. In 2013, I purchased a small residence on the Stanford campus designed by Aaron Green, a real gem of a house that had an outdoor tool shed in the carport area. I consulted Ruark about transforming the shed into a master bathroom that would incorporate into the main house without compromising or adding to the main plan. Ruark produced an ingenious, exquisite design, down to the last detail, and oversaw the construction, which entailed considerable challenges. The result is a stunning master bathroom that blends seamlessly into the unique architecture and color tones of the house. Daniel Ruark's professionalism, honesty, and devotion to his work are exemplary. He is a a master artist of organic architecture. Aaron Green recognized this, and the work Ruark did for me confirms it.
William J. Benjamin, AIA | Lux Homes Hawaii

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJanuary 30, 2014
Bill Benjamin is brilliant when working with clients. He is the only architect in Honolulu who will fully collaborate with clients and not impose his artistic views as is the case with many other local architects. He is also highly intelligent and can solve many problems of design and construction that other architects have problems with.

We had a great experience with Phillip White, Laura Ayers and staff when building our new home in Manoa.

I had a great time with John at Lapis Design Partners. He worked with me from the very first meeting to the final walk through process of my house located at Kahala neighborhood in Honolulu. He spent a great deal of his time into this project since I was not in full time residence during the process. We communicate over email, phone conversation and fax very intensively. He and his partner, Susan as a professional long-time interior designer always respected my views and wishes toward this dream house. I enjoyed the relationship with John during the process and appreciated very much for his professionalism as an architect and his responsiveness to the job. The results came much more than my expectations. We received one of AIA Honolulu awards. Most importantly, my time during the process was enjoyable ! Highly recommended.
Entheos
Architects and Building Designers in Kailua, HI
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsNovember 13, 2020
Victor "Dean" Sinco is an excellent architect and he has an excellent team of drafts-people at Entheos. He is both creative and practical. He comes up with ideas that look good but are also cost-effective. He knows how to make new construction match original construction. He is great at supervising the work and coming up with solutions on the spot for any problems. He has always responded to me in a timely way. He has done both large and small projects for me. For one large project, he designed a guest suite addition to my house that added a laundry, kitchen, and screened porch to an existing bedroom and bath. At the same time he designed a roof extension, a new laundry room plus a solar water heater room, and a complete renovation of two bathrooms, one of them handicap. A few years later, he turned a walk-in closet into a half-bath plus a smaller closet and turned garage storage into interior storage. Recently, he designed a fence, gate, and lanai for me. I will continue to use him for any future projects.

We hired Envision Design Build to help us design our kitchen remodel in conjunction with a large sliding glass door. We knew we wanted to open up the kitchen, add an island and create an indoor/outdoor feel and accessibility to the backyard patio. Envision took the time to create a plan that not only worked well within the space, but also worked best for our family. The project came out better than we could have imagined! Many thanks Gazelle & Parker!

I used Jeff for a complete renovation of my home. Adding an architect to my team was actually the last component as I thought I could get away without one. Good thing I did engage Jeff because I can't imagine what the project would have looked like had he not been involved. Jeff's design ideas and detailed drawings were certainly key to having my project completed on time and on budget, in addition to having a beautiful finished product. In addition, Jeff worked some magic and was able to get permitting in less than half the time it usually takes. Jeff was flexible, creative, detailed, organized and timely. He communicates well and was responsive to all my requests. All important criteria for having a build go smoothly. I will definitely engage Jeff again if I can find another worthwhile project.

Archipelago did an outstanding job designing our home. From the beginning of the planning, they were on top of things every step of the way. Their dedication, attention to detail and follow through far exceeded our expectations. They were worth every dime. I most strongly recommend their work.
Trigg-Smith Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Kailua, HI
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJuly 18, 2012
Trigg-Smith is probably the best architect I've ever worked with - and I've worked with many. He understands vision of his clients, line of sight no matter where you are in the house, colors, textures, materials, size, ..... He's the ultimate architect and I recommend him strongly.
Kelso Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Kailua, HI
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsSeptember 29, 2013
Kelsos were a pleasure to work with. I took them my ideas which proved to be just a bit naive in terms of cost and engineering. They were able to take my ideas for what my living spaces and view should be and fit it on to a challenging hillside. When I got Lisa to measure my truck after the garage was all laid out, the truck was a bit long. After suggesting that I get a smaller truck, they jumped in and designed around my longish truck. Throughout the initial design, cost engineering phase and final construction they were attentive and helpful. They worked very well with Kula Construction. I have been in the house for several years now and I love the design. It all works! I would use them again.
