Jeffrey T. Long, AIA, founded Long and Associates Architects, now part of the Architect-Led Design + Build firm of Longhouse Group, in 1980 after completing his architectural education and licensing in California. Raised both on the mainland and in Hawaii, Jeffrey and the team at LHG maintain a strong respect for the Hawaiian principals and strives to feature these themes in all their designs.
Recognizing a need for Hawaii's International clientele to have a single point of responsibility for Architect-Led Design + Build services, Jeffrey formed The Longhouse Group (Long & Associates Architects and Longhouse Development LLC) in 2000 to minimize the inherent "off-island” building risks for international clients and to deliver innovative and complex designs combined with exceptional general contracting services.
Longhouse Group enjoys both National and International clientele providing them with an endless source for creativity for ocean front and classic luxury and contemporary Hawaiian designs. Staffed with multiple award-winning and Leed certified architects, interior designers, interpreters, accountants, cost estimators, carpenters and contractors, The Longhouse Group proudly provides their clients with a one stop source for innovative projects, built efficiently and cost effectively.
Through the years of designing hundreds projects, we have not only learned the value of working as a united Architect-Led Design + Build company, but also the importance to the client of the time and cost benefits due from the overlapping Design and Construction Phases practiced in the Architect-Led Design+Build system. This system is where project ideas, construction budgets and schedules are resolved early while the permit approval processes occur along the same time line.
Managing Long & Associates Architects and The Longhouse Group are just some of the many daily duties required for CEO, Jeffrey Long, AIA to oversee. Jeffrey saw to the development of the 3D building animation systems which have allowed The Longhouse Group to stay in the forefront of the industry delivering innovative designs mixed with highly technical building systems.
Also playing a strong role in the initial Design Phase, Mr. Long insures the projects begin life with all the major components addressed and resolved with full client oversite and input. Once the initial phase is complete Jeffrey directs the highly effective Architect-Led Design + Build team to take over with full oversight of the design and comprehensive information systems managed by a dedicated team of professionals.
As a fully licensed architect in Hawaii & California, Jeffrey delivers an extensive and diversified background with experience in all phases of construction with an emphasis on design-build delivery.
Longhouse Group's most recent project, Hale Kapena, a 8,000 sq. ft. beachfront residence in Honolulu, received the 2013 BIA Hawaii Overall Grand Award for Residential. 3 Kapalua Place, a dramatic ocean front 7,000 sq. ft residence on Maui, was featured on Discovery Channel's television series, "Epic!” and named one of Ocean Home Magazine's Best of the Best Beach Homes in America. The home also received the 2014 BIA Hawaii Grand Award for Residential.
