Real Estate Broker/Owner with Home Shoppe Hawaii - Oahu Real Estate RB 20262

Vladimir Ossipoff is Hawaii's most iconic post-war architect. He is best known for his mid century-modernism blended with tropical influences. Ossipoff homes exhibit an understated style and creative use of open spaces. Ossipoff homes typically are designed with great consideration of basic principles of architecture. Ossipoff intelligently designed each project to fit and mold to it's landscape. In particular Ossipoff architecture typically features well-ventilated spaces which allow cooling tradewinds to keep the homes comfortable and livable in Hawaii's warm climate.

Vladimir Ossipoff was born in Russia in 1907. Ossipoff grew up in Japan and emigrated to the United States in 1923. Ossipoff graduated from the University of California - Berkeley and then moved to Hawaii, in 1931, where his 60 year architecture career began. Ossipoff worked as an architect with Theo H. Davies before going into going out on his own in 1935.

Ossipoff was quoted as saying “an architect has to be a bit of a sociologist, lawyer and psychologist. He has to know human nature.” Ossipoff homes were designed by adapting his architecture and other skills to each situation, and for who would occupy that space.

Ossipoff not only designed residential homes, but some of his most well known projects stand today as iconic Hawaiian architectural landmarks. Ossipoff designs have no single common characteristic which makes them readily identifiable and each can be extremely different. Each Ossipoff project was designed with creative attention to detail and with deference to the environment in which it was created.

Some prominent Ossipoff landmarks in Honolulu Hawaii are the IBM building, the Kakaako waterfront, Outrigger Canoe Club, the Kaimana waterfront and the Central Terminal of the Honolulu International Airport.

Vladimir Ossipoff designed many homes on the island of Oahu. Most of them are in Honolulu, but a few of them are in other areas in the island. Currently, there is a Vladimir Ossipoff designed home for sale on Lanikai Beach in Kailua.
