“Responsible design demands consideration of people, place, context and the environment.  What we do will often last for generations so failing to act responsibly is not an option.”

Founding principal of the firm, former partner in the firm of Spencer Mason Architects, Inc.

Recognized for his leading role in the preservation of culturally important places, Glenn has had the honor of working on many of the most important historic sites in Hawaii and Guam, including ‘Iolani Palace, Lunalilo Tomb, the Former Advertiser Building, Hulihe’e Palace, Kalahikiola Church, and Kawaiaha’o Church.

He views preserving our environment and people’s relationship to it as integral to the practice of architecture, and consequently, sees little separation between the concepts that underlie sustainable design and preservation practice.  He strives to find creative ways to bring new uses to old buildings, designing for the 21st century while respecting the past.
