U.S. Post Office, Court House & Custom
House, Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii Designed in 1918 by the New York architectural
firm of York and Sawyer, the "U.S. Post Office, Court House, and Custom
House" in Honolulu, Hawaii, is a good example of the Spanish Colonial
Revival style. Treasury Department architects designed this 1929 addition
which followed the style of the original building. Both the original and
the three-story extension featured thick plaster walls, arched openings,
and deep overhanging tile roofs. Two symmetrical marble stairways led
to the second-floor courtrooms.
