Located in the hills high above Honolulu on Tantalus Mountain—overlooking the city and the Pacific Ocean—the Liljestrand House is the finest example of Mid-century Modernist architecture in Hawaii. Designed by Vladimir Ossipoff, it's a remarkably well-preserved 1952 residence, the interior of which is exactly the same as when it was completed, down to the art on the walls—a very good thing, as Ossipoff (who also acted as decorator) had exquisite taste.
