Pacific Heights House Listed on Hawaii State Historic Register

The Hawaii State Historic Places Review Board unanimously approved the nomination of the Henry F. and Florence E. Davis Residence to its Register. DSA designed the structural stabilization, renovation and restoration of this property located on historic Pacific Heights Road, saving it from demolition. According to historian Don Hibbard who drafted the nomination: "The house retains a high level of integrity with its main living areas very much intact...most notably the kitchen, bathroom, and basement, these changes were handled in a sympathetic manner, and do not detract from the overall historic impression of the home." Craftsman Rich Burkam of New Haven, Connecticut and Furukawa Custom Buildiers of Kailua, Hawaii were collaborators on this project.
