CITY SAYS NO TO PRIVATE PARK

Lyche-villaen

Drammen citys richest man is denied fulfilling his vision of a park surrounding his home. After heir to the Block Watne company, Lars Nilsen, bought his ‘dream house since age 15’, “Lyche-villaen”/”Villa Lyche”, he has acquired three neighboring houses -all of which he wishes to tear down. The houses are from the 1930s built in the style of Functionalism (or Modernism) and represents an important aspect of the city’s architectural history and culture, according to local newspaper DT.
