A renovation of Traub's villa for the needs of the Hungarian Embassy.

A magnificent pergola of simple cedar slats connects to the abstract geometric mass of the house.

Original sculptures of sandstone by the sculptor Reder are located in architecturally important parts of the garden.


The south terrace is made up of sandstone slabs with seams growing through the grass.

On the east side of the villa, a low pergola is restored to its preserved stone base.
