The Scott Residence in Manoa was built in 1927. It is significant as an example of “Hawaiian style” architecture of the 1920’s and 1930’s which adapted Craftsman bungalows to the climate and lifestyle of the islands. It is further significant as an example of the work of Raymond Morris, a prolific architect that greatly influenced the look of Hawaii’s neighborhoods. In the design of the house, Morris employed many of the attributes characteristic of the “Hawaiian style.” They include the double-pitch roof, the wide overhanging eaves with exposed rafters, the use of casement windows, the open living and dining room flowing into the outdoor entertainment areas, and the use of lava rock and wood.
