Luxury. Quality. Vision. Integrity.
 

Longhouse Design+Build is a multi-disciplinary, Architectural and Construction collaborative based in Honolulu, Hawaii. Specializing in custom, luxury residential architecture, development and construction, Longhouse Design+Build combines the award-winning architecture of Long and Associates Architects & Interiors with Longhouse Development, LLC for construction providing a seamless delivery of fine custom homes and developments throughout the Hawaiian Islands.

Throughout the years, the Longhouse brand has been a recognized leader in distinctive, oceanfront, custom luxury residences. Founded in 1980 by licensed Architect, Jeffrey T. Long, the firm emerged as Long & Associates Architects and Interiors providing unique, award-winning designs across the islands for clients, including leaders in the local, mainland and global communities. Recognizing a need to have a single point of responsibility throughout the design and construction processes, the design + build services were established to provide a unified workflow thereby minimizing the inherent design and construction challenges typically experienced by mainland and international clientele. In 2016, Long & Associates Architects and Interiors was rebranded as Longhouse Design+Build representing the evolution of the firm's identification toward a more collaborative approach.

With a reputation for excellence and a talented team of licensed Architects, Interior Designers, builders, LEED accredited professionals and support personnel, Longhouse Design+Build is committed to bringing innovation, meaning and artistry to every project. As a design-driven, Architect-led firm, it combines expertise and craftsmanship with an endless source of diverse designs ranging from Traditional to Mediterranean, Contemporary Hawaiian and Urban and Mid-Century Modern.

Beyond understanding the value of working as a team, Longhouse Design+Build implements an efficient and cost effective approach for all clients. This well-honed process allows project ideas, construction budgets and schedules to be resolved concurrently with the permitting approval process, thus minimizing surprises during construction and reducing the overall project time line. Not only does the synergy between the related fields offer clients a one-stop source for innovative and complex designs, it ensures a successful project delivery from start to finish.
