The 1961 Barry Resort Home was designed by renowned architect Vladimir Ossipoff, one of the foremost architects of Hawaii, and who was known for “a style of architecture that revealed a dramatic mix of Japanese and modern elements.” The home represents one of Vladimir Ossipoff’s strongest traditional Japanese-influenced residential designs. The residence consists of two structures: the Lower Pavilion, which functions as the main living space, housing a kitchen, dining room, living room, lanai and bathroom; and the Upper Pavilion, consisting of three bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, and accessed via an open, slightly raised walkway. The “Resort Home for Mr. and Mrs. David Barry, Jr.” is significant at the state level under Criterion C as an excellent example of a Hawaii Regional style residence and the work of a master, architect Vladimir Ossipoff.
