Tropical Architecture Group Inc., located in the Hawaiian Islands has won “Best Of Design” on Houzz®, the leading platform for design professionals. The custom home design firm was chosen by the more than 40 million monthly users that comprise the Houzz community from among more than one million active home building, remodeling and design industry professionals.
“The Houzz community selected a phenomenal group of Best of Houzz 2018 award winners, so this year’s recipients should be very proud,” said Liza Hausman, Vice President of Industry Marketing at Houzz.
Designing for the tropics is not the same as designing for colder climates for several important reasons. Many people try to recreate the same style home that they love back home here in the tropics.
