advisor to Emp. Menelik II. His residence marks
the transition of round shaped plan to
rectangular- it is oval. The former oval thatched
roof was later on covered by corrugated steel,
and thus converted to polygonal. Later owned by
Dr.Lorenzo Tiezaz, a diplomat under Haile
Selassie and later Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Menelik's time. Built around 1912-1913.
