In the mid-1960s the building fell into disuse and subsequently became a boarding house and in 1971 was badly damaged by fire. Partners in the construction company, Resnekov and Neilson, bought the establishment which had been badly vandalized and in 1991 commissioned Michael MUNNIK to restore the building to its former glory.
