“Building a house involves a dozen large and a thousand smaller decisions.  Lorraine listened carefully; and at every point was able to articulate a solution that was just beyond our reach.  We’re completely pleased with the look and function of our new house; and happily recommend Lorraine’s vision, her deep scholarly knowledge, and gentle manner.” -Ron and Susan Yanagihara, client

“Lorraine Minatoishi is a professional, trustworthy and creative architect.  We got to know Lorraine almost 10 years ago when she worked on our home.  She did a thorough research and a detailed description and was able to get it registered as a Historic Residence.  We have seen her work of fine designs, remodeled homes, and new constructions.  We recommend Lorraine to all our friends and anyone looking for the best architect in Hawaii.” -Won and Jane Lee, client
