About the Awards

In the Hawaiian language, hoohuli refers to the idea of change. This is, at heart, what excellent interior design achieves – the transformation of interior environments, and in turn, the transformation of the users who experience and are inspired by them. Interior design goes beyond the physical and often affects the unseen – functionality, health and well-being. Native to Hawaii and characterized by its vibrant colors, the King Kamehameha butterfly and its movement are symbolic of this conversion by way of design.

The Hoohuli Awards celebrate this transformation by honoring outstanding  and original commercial interior design in Hawaii. Local designers are provided an opportunity to highlight their projects to a larger audience.  Winning a Hoohuli Award is a mark of exceptional commercial design, vetted by seasoned and trusted leaders in the national interior design community. In this inception year, the awards’ mission is to promote the value of Hawaii designers and perpetuate the interior design profession for years to come.
