Hawaii Foundation Launches Ossipoff Documents Restoration Project
When the property description of a home for sale in Hawaii includes the words “designed by architect Vladimir Ossipoff,” those familiar with the name take notice. One example is a property currently for sale on the Big Island of Hawaii, MLS 263319. Hale Kai at Keauhou Bay is described as a mid-century modern oceanfront estate, which, according to the listing agent, was designed by Ossipoff. Two Ossipoff-designed Oahu properties currently for sale are MLS 201331391 (Prospect Street) and MLS 201331086 (Maunawili Road).
About six years ago, says a Pacific Business News article published this week, the University of Hawaii’s Hamilton Library acquired several of Ossipoff’s original drawings but, due to budget constraints, has been unable to properly preserve them. A new crowd-funding campaign launched on October 11 by the Hawaii Chapter of the American Institute of Architecture Students and the Hawaii Architectural Foundation hopes to change that by raising funds to help archive the drawings and make them more easily accessible.
