The Hoogs Residence is a single-story house, which sits on a large, sloping 15,000 square foot lot on the west side of Manoa valley with an unobstructed view of Diamond Head and the Pacific Ocean. The house with its front facing gables, built-in furniture, and use of lava rock and figure four bracketing relates closely with the bungalow tradition as it developed in the 1920’s in Hawaii. However, it is larger than many bungalows and its U-plan places it above many more modest examples of the style. The design of the house well addresses Hawaii’s climatic needs. The large double hung sash windows in the dining room’s rear wall provide not only magnificent vistas of Diamond Head, but also allow ample air flow through the house, especially when combined with the living room’s two, large, double hung sash front windows.
