The Jennings Residence is a Colonial Revival style house constructed in Hawaii in the 1920’s, which has been adapted to address the Islands’ climatic situation. The house sits on the uphill side of Alewa Drive with views of downtown Honolulu and the Pacific Ocean. It is a two-story house that sits on a heavily vegetated and terraced, 8,500 square foot lot. Rendered in a Colonial Revival style, the asymmetric house is distinguished by a single story, pedimented portico with Tuscan columns and a broken pediment which is centered on the 31 x 32 foot main body of the house. The rectangular shaped house has clapboard walls on the exterior, and is sheltered by a hipped roof with overhanging, enclosed eaves.
