Transformation of the layout of the house

Transformation of the layout of the house

The house was designed in 1969 by a German architect based on the design of an existing house in Eskaton. The current owner’s family bought the house in 1973, and made no structural changes to the house. The only major change made was in partially converting the large garden into a basketball court. A wooden lattice was also added to the balcony. The lawn in front of the house was used for multiple purposes such as a playfield, a garden and even as a space to organize barbecue parties.
