FSC Architects is a hospitality design firm with an international practice offering planning and architecture services from its headquarters in Honolulu, Hawaii. The founding partners have combined over 45 years experience as hospitality designers and over 85 years of architecture practice with projects spanning the globe in over 24 countries.
Because of their hospitality design focus , FSC Architects think of themselves more as designers of experiences rather than as conventional architects. Their creed is to create “Living Places” or built environments that enrich life. This is a holistic and sensitive approach to space, both indoors and outdoors, requiring strong place making skills and adaptability . It also requires a respect for culture, people and the environment involving exceptional listening skills and flexibility. More than a hospitality design approach it is the reflection of the way of life in Hawaii: A valuable respect for its land and people which they call the spirit of aloha.
The living places design approach parlays well beyond luxury hotel design and resort architecture to mixed-use, retail, residential, timeshare, golf clubhouses and master planning. The resulting design of the site and its buildings is hospitable and harmonious, and allows FSC Architects to create something unique for every project. It is also reflected in the more eclectic portfolio, defying style categorization that may best be described as contemporary regionalism .
