Our combined experience of over 70 years gives us the knowledge and resources to successfully execute projects across a wide range of types and sizes. Our broad experience also gives us the ability to reach beyond what is easily expressed and capture the subjective goals and values of our clients. We believe well-designed environments facilitate successful living and working.
We want our clients to be delighted and uplifted by the spaces we create. Our definition of success is helping our clients to complete projects that fully achieve their unique goals and aspirations. For that reason, we do not have a signature style. We believe the character of each project must evolve from a design process that focuses on the client’s needs, personality, and lifestyle.
Our designs are always respectful of local characteristics and the environment. We are committed to conserving energy and preserving natural resources through sustainable practices in design, material selection, and construction. Sustainable design also ensures that our projects will have lasting value and that our clients will get the maximum return on their investment.
We believe good design is always possible. Design constraints imposed by a tight budget, difficult site conditions, regulatory requirements, or other factors are simply challenges to be met – not excuses for bad design.
Last, but not least, we believe in close communication and collaboration with our clients. For a project to be successful there must be continuous sharing of ideas and information during all phases of the design process.
When we decided to renovate our condominium in Wailea, we did not want it to be like all the others, nor did we want a cookie-cutter solution. Marshall Design Studio presented us with design options that recognized our individual and unique style. Our condo was taken down to the studs and completely made over.
Jane was committed from design concept through construction. We were especially impressed with her lighting expertise and her dedication in working with our Italian plumbing supplier, a challenge to say the least. Our new Maui home surpassed our expectations. It is absolutely different and beautiful.Susan and Fred Baxter
