Alfred Preis is one of my favorite mid-century modern architects from Hawaii.
This Alfred Preis Home at 17 Kepoloa Place (MLS# 1015545) was recently listed for $1,300,000
We recently completed a remodel of one of his homes in Diamond Head. Although not as famous as Vladimir Ossipoff, Alfred Preis was named one of Honolulu Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People, and is most famous for the Arizona Memorial. There are far less residential Preis homes than there are Ossipoff homes that come available for sale, and when they do, they typically sell fast.
The one I wrote about in Alewa Heights recently has already sold, and my guess is this one won’t be around for long. All of the sudden, there are a few cool mid-century modern homes available in Nuuanu (including a recent Ossipoff listing), which has traditionally been an area for older Hawaiiana homes.
