Significance: This housing type is significant as residences for most of the flag officers of the Navy in Hawaii from 1941 to the present, and as an example of Hawaiian residential architecture during the 1940s, in a grouping of related types. The design is notable for the use of new materials and minimal ornamentation, united with a traditional overall appearance. The design accommodated prefabricated components and assembly line building techniques, reflecting the need for rapid construction in this period of build-up to World War II. This house represents the later work of one of Hawaii's master architects, C.W. Dickey. The house responds well to Hawaii's temperate environment, although its design was also influenced by the factors mentioned above. These houses served as the quarters of the senior officers who helped direct the war in the Pacific from 1941 to 1945. During World War II, some, if not all, of these houses were used as a bachelor officers' quarters, since most wives and dependents were sent to the mainland in October of 1941.
