Villa "Red Room"

This abandoned city villa used to stand across from the municipal forest in the luxury quarter of the city of Kiel, Germany until it was demolished early in the year 2017.

Not much is known about the history of this once lordly residence. The layout suggests a classical villa from the late 19th century with seperate access for personnel and servant's sleeping quarters under the roof. The former main kitchen has a seperate spiral staircase to the storage basement. A variety of doorbells and nameplates suggest that the last use of the old viilla was as an apartment building.

The back facade has apparently been renewed in the late 1960s or early 1970s which probably was the cause that the old house was not placed under monument protection.

It was torn down to build a parking lot.
