Team3

 

Since its establishment in 1979, Design Partners Incorporated (DPI) has provided planning and design services in Hawaii, the Pacific Basin and far East.

The strength of the firm lies in its ability to cover the entire design process, from planning and design to construction administration. In addition to conventional architectural services, the firm offers programming, feasibility studies, land-use studies and interior architecture.

Our core philosophy lies in creating innovative and refined designs that respect the cultural and environmental uniqueness of each locale while meeting the client’s overall business goals.
