The reason we call ourselves Hawaii Off Grid - Architecture & Engineering is because we are not simply a design firm. We offer Architectural services, Structural Engineering services, and Civil Engineering through our family of companies. This allows us to help our clients in many aspects of their design, and also allows us to fill in the blanks for many mysteries of the building process.

Each year we take on a maximum of six new builds. These projects are our favorite.

We love meeting with the client to figure out how to build the home that fits their design aesthetic, meets their needs, and allows us to lend our trademark clean and modern style to our sustainable practices.

As a Hawaii Architecture Firm, we keep the IBC building codes in mind, so we are sure that the design will meet the required permits and inspections.

We enjoy the balance of expression and practicality in this part of residential architecture. To find out how your project can fit into our scheduling, please email aloha@hioffgrid.com or give us a call at 808-495-8639.

We are proud to continue the Hawaii tradition of building additional homes to keep our family close to us.

We maximize the design of smaller spaces, keep the look in line with the main house, and do all this while working with the tricky county codes.

Additions and Ohanas are a wonderful way to make the home you already love more spacious and still have privacy when you share your home with guests or loved ones.

Renovations are where our clients’ ideas are the strongest. If your home has some great bones to work with, renovating can save you from having to move!

We know what the Hawaii architecture parameters are: We help figure out what’s possible and, more importantly, what’s not going to work. We blend our years of experience with innovation, to help achieve the improvement you are hoping for. Keep in mind that even classic homes can be modified for both functionality and luxury.

As a Maui Architect, we are proud to work with several contractors including Huber Pools and Maui Pool Masters to bring you the very best pool designs.

If possible, we’d also like to help you pair a pool with a solar renewable energy system by designing one that will help you cut costs and make the environment stronger.

Building in Hawaii is a unique experience. One of the reasons we became experts is that we carry all of our house plans through permitting. This has helped us become knowledgable about navigating each department.

After many years of working with multiple jurisdictions, we know the ins and outs of the complex system required to get your build done.

Our Feasibility Studies are assessments of the practicality of your project.

If you’re looking for a Residential Architect in Hawaii to design your build, we can help you take away some of the guessing game when considering whether to move forward.

We provide clients with sustainable options for materials, methods, and the newest technologies in renewable energy, water, and waste systems.

Just remember "Off Grid Living" does not mean sacrificing comfort or even luxury. You can have the building of your dreams while also enjoying peace of mind. You’ll know you have built a home that is both sustainable in our Hawaii environment and sustainable for the world.

There is no project too big.

Hawaii’s commercial architecture projects are some of our most interesting to work on! We have worked on the county level, the state level, and with the Federal Government, along with countless private large scale projects. 

We are a family of companies that includes architecture, structural engineering, and civil engineering. We are prepared to handle any commercial needs, just email us at aloha@hioffgrid.com.

The technology for off-grid living has improved dramatically in the last decade. Your luck to be building an off grid home now offers you lots of options. Usually this will include a combination of solar, inverters, and batteries.

Designing these systems specifically for your needs is a crucial decision, and it’s what we specialize in. Have a look at our page dedicated to energy systems here: hawaiioffgrid.com/energy.

There is no sacrifice of luxury while doing the right thing. We are happy to work with you to identify exactly what you need...and make it happen.
