The worst experience ever! Our family's dream that turned into a nightmare when we decided to hire Michele as our architect. Very poor communication via e-mail, phone, and text. Never gets back in a timely fashion. Always has an excuse. Getting minor revisions done is worse than pulling teeth. When revisions is sent after weeks and even a month, it is not complete. Very frustrating and stressful to work with. Good price but you do get what you pay for.

I've had nothing but spectacular interactions with Michele d'Amico, owner of d'Amico Design Group. Her services are affordable and her customer service is second to none. Michele is an absolute joy to work with and makes any project manageable and even easy. When it comes to architecture and home remodeling, she is an invaluable asset and I couldn't recommend her enough!

Needed an architecture firm in Honolulu that would draw up plans for our major home remodel and not charge us an arm and a leg, and d'Amico Design Group was definitely the one who fit the bill. Michele did a wonderful job with the designs and plans and she also pulled all the necessary permits. Excellent architecture firm!

It doesn't get better than this. Michele's architectural talent and experience make her the best architect in Honolulu that I have ever hired. As a developer and investor, I have hired several architects and a few interior designers as well, and by far, Michele has delivered the most beautiful results at the best value. I will continue to hire her firm for all architectural design and drafting projects well into the future.

Yes, Michele d'Amico is an awesome architect here in Honolulu. She came up with design ideas and then final plans for our home remodeling project at a very affordable price. To top it off, she is also an interior designer, so we hired her to make our interior look amazing as well. Highly recommend her.

I had a great experience working with this architect in Honolulu. I needed designs and plans drawn up for a major home remodeling / renovation for our Honolulu vacation home. I was so glad I stumbled upon D'Amico Design Group after doing many google searches. Michele turned out to be a super professional architect with tons of experience. She's done work for major hotels, government embassy buildings, restaurants, and lots of residential homes. She is super kind and friendly and knowledgeable and her rates are ridiculously cheap compared to other architecture firms in Honolulu / Oahu. I was astonished with the beauty of her designs for our home and when we saw everything come to fruition after the remodeling crew put the designs on paper into reality, we were overjoyed and thrilled with our beautiful "new" home. I wish we had done this sooner. Michele is the tops when it comes to architects in Honolulu and surprisingly affordable and way cheaper than all the other overpriced architects in Hawaii.

If you are in need of an architect in Honolulu, then do yourself a favor, hire d'Amico Design Group! Michele is a very accomplished and experienced architect and interior designer. She knows how to create beautiful exteriors and interiors of houses. She is professional and friendly, and she is even a good match for those on a budget, like me. Great architect, great rate, a real no brainer! The best part is, Michele is not only a licensed architect and interior designer, but also a construction manager, so she managed our project from beginning to end so we didn't have to - what a lifesaver! We certainly don't have time for attending to every little detail of a construction and remodeling project. But Michele was on top of everything, and she was way more affordable than if we let the general contractor do everything.

Michele at d'Amico Design Group over delivered when we hired her to design our new second floor addition and kitchen remodel. We were ignoring our Honolulu vacation home and rental for far too long and so we shopped around for a contractor. We quickly realized that what we needed first was a good architect. That led us to Michele, who is not only an architect local to Honolulu, but also she is an interior designer. She was in fact the past president of ASID, the American Society of Interior Designers. That is an amazing combination, architect and interior designer. We were so pleased by the quality of her design work. Our Honolulu home is now absolutely gorgeous!

Wow, I was impressed with Michele d'Amico of D'Amico Design Group and her magnificent architectural skills and knowledge. She helped us add on a new living space, basically a new family room as well as a bathroom and also a kitchen remodel. It was our first time doing such extensive home remodeling as it was our first home in Honolulu. Michele was a dream to work with, she knew exactly every piece of the puzzle and what to do and how it should be done. She was much more than an architect, she was also a construction manager! We didn't even need a general contractor! Talk about savings! She saved us a huge bundle of cash by not having to hire a go-between general contractor who usually outsources everything anyway. Now our house is so beautiful, we are proud and excited to have guests over for holidays and special occasions. We have gotten lots of compliments so far and we have referred Michele to friends and family in Honolulu or Oahu who need architectural designs or plans or even permits and entire construction and remodeling help! And again, the price was very affordable since Michele's rates on architectural plans were low and she saved us from having to hire a general contractor. And the quality of her work! Amazing!

We hired Michele at d'Amico Design Group at the referral of a good friend. She had drawn up plans for his home remodel and we saw firsthand how beautiful her aesthetic sensibilities are. This is an architect we had to hire for our Honolulu home remodel as well. We are so glad we did! Michele did an amazing job working together with us to help us realize our dream home. She not only is a super talented architect, but she is also a top rated interior designer. (She was actually the past president of ASID Hawaii, the American Society of Interior Designers.) This combination of both architectural and interior design skills resulted in a truly gorgeous home remodel that we are really proud of. And another great thing is that Michele's rates are so affordable - it's unbelievable how we could get so much skill and talent for such a reasonable price. If you get the chance, I highly recommend you hire her for your next home, kitchen or bath remodeling project.
