Notes
Survey number HABS HI-355-E
Building/structure dates: 1941 initial construction
National Register Number: 66000940
Significance: This housing type is significant as the residence of 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. During World War II this house was probably used as a bachelor officers' quarters, since most wives and dependents were sent to the mainland in October of 1941. The senior officers who lived here during World War II helped direct the war in the Pacific.
