The Kubo Residence is a two-story Foursquare with a single-story wing on one side. The house is rectangular in shape and both the main body and wing have hipped roofs. The dwelling does not derive from any historical style and appears to be inspired from local conditions. The Kubo Residence is architecturally significant as a house designed by C. W. Dickey in the 1930s in Hawaii. The house is also significant for its association with the social history of Hawaii with regards to the interracial marriage between Dr. Kubo and his wife Florence which at the time was uncommon.
