Burton Studio worked with Blackstone Real Estate to reimagine the entire property at the Ritz Carlton Maui, Kapalua and suggest a series of site improvements to strengthen the guest experience of this prominent Hawaiian resort. The design proposal introduced a series of enhancements to the arrival experience, and existing pool and spas, newly expanded ground floor guest rooms, and various other site amenities. The redesign emphasizes the site’s particular context in Kapalua and promotes an appreciation for this unique environment and cultural setting on the island.
