Lisa Y.T. Rapp



Lisa finds it rewarding to create spaces that enhance peoples’ lives and enrich their experiences. With more than 31 years of experience in the architecture profession, Lisa has worked on a broad range of large-scale resorts and urban hotels, high-rise condominiums, restaurants, commercial mixed-use, and high-end residential projects worldwide. As AHL’s hospitality principal, her job is to lead others with a direction consistent with the firm’s overall vision, core values, and goals. She values the collaborative process within the office and achieving success with her team.

Reading, dancing, movie watching, and spending time with her family are a few of her favorite activities. Having grown up in Hawai‘i, Lisa is most proud of her large, culturally diverse family.
