Saved by the hippies ✌️
The intention was to demolish the house and build government office in their place. Before this came to be, a battle for the buildings preservations was held. It lasted for about a decade, but all the while the house decayed and parts of them caught fire. In this house alone there were three different fires during the period of the preservation battle.
After much struggle the Torfusamtök, consisting of hippies, activists and architects, were finally victorious and got to rent the houses from the state with restoration and preservation as their main goal. Their successful work is apparent to The Lobsterhouse visitors.
