Glover House

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 6 November 2015 in Architecture.

Completed in 1863, "The Glover Residence is noted for its blend of Western and Japanese elements and is an example of treaty port building. This type of architecture closely resembles one-story bungalows used by foreigners in Hong Kong or Shanghai and imported to Japan by British traders." (Wikipedia) In spite of the Western influence, "The basic construction of the house is Japanese . . . . It consists of traditional Japanese roof supports and post-and-beam frames set down on boulders."

I Love this house and surroundings...A really cool style if you as k me :-) Although the style, as I recall, does not look like them, it still somehow makes me think of some of the houses I remember seeing in the neighborhoods close to "downtown" Honolulu when we visited there ages ago. Love this Agave (?) plant out front Great plants!! Beautiful shot

Wonderful shot of the Glover House. It's interesting that Japanese roof tiles fit with the wetern-style house very well.
