The KYA Approach


The KYA Way

Creative designs evolve and result from the strength of quality relationships. We invest in building strong relationships because these connections serve as a catalyst for collaboration, innovative thinking, and problem solving. We believe our designs have the power to inspire our clients and communities to create a better, more sustainable built environment for future generations. 

We create exceptional designs for Hawaii's built environment while protecting our natural resources, promoting community diversity, and building lasting relationships.
Our collaborative design process allow us to bring complex and innovative ideas to fruition.
We aim to inspire a sustainable, shared vision of the future that reflects the beauty of Hawaii and its people.

"KYA's repeated business with us is attributed to their leadership and commitment to excellence [...] It is also with apprehension that I recommend them, for if it has any influence in KYA being selected, I will have to share my good fortunes with others."
