Significance: This building is significant as an example of adaptation of an office building to residential use after World War II. This building was a Transportation Department office during World War II, but apparently was designed to fit in the residential neighborhood. The design reflected the need for rapid construction in the period of build-up to and beginning of World War II. This building is significant as an example of vernacular architecture during the 1940s, whose design reflects Hawaii's temperate environment.
