about laber architects

Laber Architects located in Waikoloa on the South Kohala coast of Hawaii (aka the Big Island). Laber architects specialize in residential, commercial and resort projects.

Principle and founding architect Joel Laber has been licensed in Hawaii for 25 years and is involved in all project aspects: establishing the design requirements with the client, design concepts, design development, bid, negotiation, construction documents, construction administration and construction management.

We work closely with the client in every phase of the project to ensure the successful completion of their vision.
