Description Change this

This summer house was designed by Hungarian architect György Kévés in 1972.

The house was originally designed for a tailor. That time in Budapest a very few places produced high-quality suits. The tailor asked sportsmen to bring him quality raw material from Western countries to sew from. Kévés was one of his clients, he sewed a suit for Kévés, that is how they got to know each other. One day when Kévés visited him, the tailor told him that he bought a terrain and would like to build a summer house.

"Next time I come, I bring a sketch" - Kévés said and tried quickly conceived him not to dream about a simple treehouse. That is how the summer house's story started.
