Doo House

In the late 1950s, Nisbet moved to Waikiki where he set up his own architecture practice. An article published about him in the Honolulu Advertiser in 1958 drew the attention of Sai Chow Doo, a prominent attorney in Hawaii, who commissioned Nisbet to design a home for his family. Built on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Nisbet used poured concrete masonry to stabilize the house from land and sea.
