Built in 1926, the Lum Residence is a single-story masonry house finished with stucco, and is T-shaped in plan with a prominent, outset hip roofed with a center wing. The center wing intersects with a gable roofed wing to the right, and a demi-octagonal hip roofed wing to the left. The Kin and Lau Shee Lum Residence is significant as a good example of a modest Mediterranean revival house constructed in Hawaii in the period of the 1920s. The house is typical of its period in its use of materials, method of construction, craftsmanship, and design. The Lum Residence was designed by Robert Kuhns.
