The Mrs. Flora Lidgate Residence was built in 1935 in Manoa. It is significant as a Hawaiian style house constructed during the 1930’s, and as the work of master architect C.W. Dickey. The house displays Dickey’s mature style, with its double pitched hipped roof, strong sense of cross ventilation, and use of large expanses of windows and sliding doors. The character of the house derives from its simple massing with its dominant roof, rather than applied ornamentation. The house incoporates these major hallmarks of the Hawaiian style of architecture in an L-shaped plan, and adds another major Hawaiian style feature, the lanai.
