About Us

Inouye Design specializes in the design of high-end custom homes for discriminating clients and has won numerous awards for functional and aesthetic home designs and floor plans. Inouye Design was formed in 1997 by Aaron Inouye to provide personal service coupled with innovative design to create extraordinary housing projects that reflect the needs, desires and personality of each homeowner. Integral to providing quality service is maintaining attention to detail, utilizing cutting edge 3D computer technology, and incorporating every client’s specific requirements by listening to their demands and working closely with them. This results in a highly successful design and positive experience that blends the homeowner’s individual lifestyle with the project’s unique setting.


Inouye Design has created designs for custom residences in Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. These projects vary in size from 1,500 to 35,000 square feet. Many of these homes have been featured in publications such as Utah Home and Style, Edge Builders, Leading Residential Builders, and Utah Valley Magazine as well as several appearances on the television shows Hot Homes of Utah and Homes Today Utah Edition.

We work with the Best

Inouye Design utilizes the latest technologies in computer aided design/drafting.

About Us

Inouye Design uses Revit, a BIM modeling software, which allows an entire project to be built in a virtual environment where the design process can be taken to a higher level of refinement and creativity that can be better visualized by homeowners before actual construction begins. This helps the designer and clients to visualize every aspect of the design in more realistic perspective from the the exterior to the interior. Many construction problems can be detected and eliminated saving time and money on the construction of the house. Additionally, money and time can be saved due to a decrease in change orders since the homeowner is able to better visualize the final project and make adjustments during the design phase.


The 3D modeling software also allows us to create photo realistic exterior renderings for clients which helps them select and visualize final materials and colors. Many of our clients enjoy this feature along with the walk-through and fly-by videos we create for them. These capabilities, joined with a hard working staff, allow for the production of high quality working drawings for successful building projects.
