Ventus Design

Summary of Services:

Ventus Design provides luxury residential and commercial interior design services. Known for their sophisticated approach to universal design and aging in place.

Luxury design is far deeper than merely creating striking visual treatments and incorporating objects intended to impress others. Thanks to living with her 90-year-old mother in a universal design residence (her own design, of course), Reiko Lewis has been paying close attention to the evolving meaning of “luxury,” which is now more than ever about a place that radiates comfort, offers safety and health-related features, enhances the joy of living, and promotes peace of mind.

Reiko is both a Certified Aging in Place Specialist and a qualified “Luxury Design Specialist.” Passionate about her projects, she works thoughtfully, employing a detailed design process that allows her to achieve both safety and functionality while also providing a luxurious “runway look.”

Reiko Lewis Principal, Ventus Design
Hawaii's Most Trusted Luxury Design Specialist
Safe, Functional, Comfortable, and "Runway Look Design" for ALL
Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist (CAPS)

Reiko Lewis started in hospitality, but when she launched her company,  she wanted to go back to her original motivation that is to help the people by constructing the nice environments. After all, the statistics says that people spend 90% of their entire life in the interior space that plays critical roles in health and well-being. Reiko fills the needs by practicing environmental design.
Among all certifications she holds, she feels most passionate about Aging-in-Place. The CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) defines it as “the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or level of ability.” It generally refers to the phenomena of seniors remaining in their homes and communities as they age rather than relocating or moving into a healthcare facility or assisted living space. What we all have in common is the fact that we all age. While many of us like to avoid this topic, it is a critical aspect of our lives to take an honest look, and it is a meaningful discussion to have with yourself, and your loved ones. We should create safe, functional, comfortable, and uplifting space for all the people. Some people call it Universal Design, others call it Inclusive Design. Aging-In-Place is a part of the social movement. Between now and 2060, it’s estimated the number of seniors will almost double from approximately 52 million to 95 millions.
Reiko has presented numerous seminars on this topic during the past few years. She noticed that the majority of people only realize there’s an issue when their family members are forced to decide if they can stay at home or have go to a healthcare facility. It is ideal to prepare for it before the needs arise. It is much more economical to set up your home ahead of time by utilizing several home equity loans while you still have an income flow. But some of the homeowners are concerned that the property's value may decrease after this type of modification. Reiko has won three awards, locally and nationally, for 55+ category design.
