“My wife and I would like to express our sincere appreciation for a job well done. [Trigg has] made building our home a true pleasure. I have worked with dozens of architects during the past twenty years, both commercial and residential. I’ve never experienced one that was willing to listen, let my own thoughts work and yet come out with a design that was functional yet beautiful. [Trigg has] been fun and attentive. Many thanks, as this is the most important project in our life.”

– Michael and Joanna Dick

“In a neighborhood of many magnificent houses, with a somewhat monotonous similarity, Trigg has designed for us a home that incorporates all of the features that we desired, a style that reflects our tastes and has achieved spatial relationships and a volume that are perfect for our growing family.”

– Chris Johnson

“We have been working with Alwyn Trigg-Smith for the past several years on our project, from the design phase through construction. Working with Trigg has been a pleasant experience. We have found him to be extremely creative, energetic, a good reference/ information source, a good listener, a person with a very positive attitude, a good problem solver, and very easy to work with.”

– Sheryl Bell

“I am delighted with the results. I would strongly recommend Trigg to anyone planning to build a custom home.”

– Walter Simmons

“We hired Trigg to design our retirement home in Kailua in July of 2007. We had spent many months with another architect but that was not working relative to meeting our unusual style needs until we discovered Trigg. We were primarily attracted to his ability to capture the feel and detail of an older Hawaiian home. We loved his Kauai homes and wanted that detail in a smaller and less expensive home. He was able to deliver. Trigg worked very closely with us, listened carefully to our needs and was patient with our rather fussy specs, our “we like this” photos of other homes, unusual needs and not infrequent changes of mind. We met very frequently through the final design process. We provided ideas and wants and Trigg would provide sketches at our next meeting – often isometric views that were easier for both of us to visualize. It has turned out very well – we receive endless compliments on our home. People walk by and notice – often thinking that this very new house must be the “original” home in this area! We are quite happy in our new home; our home is cool, the rooms are magnificent, it meets our needs wonderfully.”
