JOHANNESBURG CULTURAL LEGACY
L RON HUBBARD HOUSE
From 1960 to 1961 this property was home to L. Ron
Hubbard, author, humanitarian and founder of Scientology.
It has been restored to this period and displays many of
Mr Hubbard's personal artefacts and achievements.
Designed by Frank L. Jarrett in 1951 for a Greek timber
merchant, Manos Broulidakis, the house is an excellent
example of Post-War Modernism with its bold flying
roof, rusticated and recessed slasto base, and
dramatic form created through the articulation
of different functions using the
steepness of ridge slope.
