Greg Warner, co-founder of Walker Warner Architects, grew up on Hawaii’s Big Island. As a youth, he attended Waimea’s Hawaii Preparatory Academy (HPA), designed by renowned regionalist Vladimir Ossipoff. While he was initially unaware of who had designed the school’s campus or chapel, Warner recognized it as a unique and special place. The elements that Ossipoff incorporated into HPA would later embed themselves into Warner’s subconscious and ultimately prove to impact his future design sensibilities.
Taking the lessons absorbed from his childhood, Warner and his firm have developed an approach to design that is based on context and sensitivity to place while bridging the gap from ‘house’ to ‘home’ and honoring craft and natural materials. This presentation will examine the inspiration found in Ossipoff’s work and showcase its continued relevance through the residential and commercial work of Walker Warner Architects in Hawaii and beyond.
Greg Warner co-founded the San Francisco-based firm Walker Warner Architects in 1989. His work, and that of the firm, is focused upon custom residential and estate projects which can be found throughout the United States, especially in the American West Coast and in Hawaii. Warner's work has been widely published and recognized through dozens of awards. For over 30 years, Walker Warner Architects has been committed to the design of meaningful buildings that strive to be site-responsive, timeless and well-crafted - enduring architecture for inspired living.
