Summary

Significance: This housing type is significant 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, 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. These houses represent the later work of one of Hawaii's master architects, C. W. Dickey. The houses respond well to Hawaii's temperate environment, although their design was also influence by the factors mentioned above. The significance of this design also relates to the patterns of military rank, with the junior officers' quarters having notable differences in size and design elements from the senior officers' houses.
