De Reus Architects, the Hawaii-based architectural practice known for its work on several high-profile resorts and residences, has promoted studio director Dan Dzakowic to partner.
Overseeing dozens of successful projects
Dzakowic has been promoted to partner of De Reus Architects, which has offices at Kamuela in Hawaii and Ketchum in Idaho, having shown expertise in the planning, design and management of dozens of successful projects since first joining the firm in 2005.
Dzakowic has orchestrated masterplans for resorts and handled the design of significant residences. Among other work, he managed the design of the recently completed remodel of Four Seasons Oahu at Ko Olina, and was involved in the Punta Sayulita Resort project in Mexico.
A proven commitment to design
Over the past 16 years, Dzakowic has devoted himself to the development of housing and mixed-use developments in all settings. Described by the firm as warm and humble, and with a commitment to De Reus Architects’ guiding principles, he is recognised through this promotion as an ideal leader to help take the business forward.
“Dan is fully committed to our client-driven culture and practice, and has been integral to our success since opening the firm,” said Mark de Reus, president of De Reus Architects.
“It’s an honour to take on a larger leadership role in the firm and I am proud to become a partner that will help us continue building from the values and ethos of the firm,” added Dzakowick. “I’m looking forward to future collaborations and what we can achieve together.”
