The Grand Wailea Resort
Wailea, Maui, Hawaii
The Grand Wailea Resort, a 40-acre tropical retreat on the island of Maui was completed in 1991 at a landscaping cost of $12,000,000.00 that also included the water features and exterior artwork. Our involvement in this project began at the conceptual level where we worked closely with the Architect and Owner in developing the outdoor spaces to include fresh and saltwater water lagoons, functional and recreational pathways, outdoor seating pavilions, and bridges.
During the design development phase our office was given the added responsibility of selecting local artists who could produce a variety of artwork that would eventually be placed throughout the property’s 20 acres of thematic gardens and open spaces. During the Construction Administration Phase this office assisted the Architect and Owner in all aspects of the installation including placement of plant materials, artwork and lighting, and the layout of pathways, pavilions and bridges.
