The house is important as a rare example of post-war Streamline Moderne with elements of the International Style. This modernism is associated primarily with architect-designed houses and its flat-roofed design reflects the wide acceptance of the International style. This sophisticated house demonstrates the transition of the Ocean Park neighbourhood from rural logging community to a more affluent neighbourhood.
