The George and Phyllis Hogan Residence is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood in Kailua on Dune Circle, a serene loop off Kaleheo Avenue with approximately thirty one houses lining its two sides. It is a single-story, modern style house with Japanese overtones. It has an intersecting, shake shingle, hip-gablet roof with open, overhanging eaves and exposed rafter tails. At the roofs’ corners are ringed, rain chains. The gablets are treated in a Japanese manner with vertical slats surmounting horizontal siding, and the ridge beams with decorative, extended ends are also reminiscent of Japanese architecture. The George and Phyllis Hogan Residence is significant on the local level under criterion C as a good example of a modern style house with Japanese overtones designed during the 1950s in Hawaii. It is also architecturally significant as a work of a master, Honolulu architect George Hogan.
