I have known Philip Cudaback for over 10 years and have worked on several projects with him over the years. Lahaina Architects have been the Architect of record for my restaurants and retail spaces and development projects. They have also completed many other small but very important projects in the ANI / Patio restaurant portfolio. This is my go to team.

Watkins Landmark Construction has teamed up with Lahaina Architects on several Design / Build projects. These opportunities have provided our clients with projects that have been on schedule, under budget and have exceeded expectations. Lahaina Architects have provided a flexible, cost conscious, design oriented approach to these Design / Build projects. We are looking forward to many more.

We selected Lahaina Architects to design our restaurant after following their work closely on a few beautiful projects in the San Diego area. Their network of associates including engineers and food service consultants almost made it a “one stop shop” for the needs of our project, saving us time, energy and money.

Owner and Architect, Phil Cuddaback and his team of professionals helped us navigate through some complex permitting challenges, that could have easily derailed our project. We learned quickly that if you are going to plan a development in a coastal zone, you better have the right people behind you, especially with projects the scale of ours.

We’re now on our 3rd full-scale project in less than 2 years with Lahaina Architects and are looking forward to expanding on that in the near future.

We would most definitely recommend Lahaina Architects. Phil and his staff were an absolute pleasure to work with. They went above and beyond to walk us through the entire process. From their wonderful customer service, wealth of knowledge and experience in their field we were extremely happy with our decision to use Lahaina Architects.

We have had the pleasure of working with Phil, and his team at Lahaina Architecture on 6-7 very exciting and creative projects over the years. Aside from the wealth of knowledge this team brings to the table regarding the complexities of the California code, Lahaina brings an attitude that can help make a dreary process exiting and fun with great creativity and inspiration. Most Architectural firms can draw, but to understand southern California’s municipal and county complexities and process’ is critical in order to progress in the development of the once unfathomable, and this quality is something that is only gained with years of Local experience. As a contractor It helps tremendously to work with an architect that in not only local but cares about what it actually takes to build what, at times, seems impossible. Bravo to the team at Lahaina! They seem to continue to meet or exceed expectations and we are thrilled to see what this team brings to the fruition next.
