The Haraguchi house is a single-family residence designed by Vladmir Ossipoff. The exterior of the home embodies the understated aesthetic of Japanese architecture while the home’s open floor plan and multitude of sliding doors and windows, as well as other features, allow for a true connection to the natural setting of the home. The home is significant as a representative example of the work of Vladmir Ossipoff, a figure renowned in the history of architecture in Hawaii. The residence in particular embodies Mr. Ossipoff’s unique merging of the aesthetic of Eastern architecture and the sensitivity to the surrounding environment championed in Western mid-century modern architecture.
