I don't see any cause for concern that the 1930s house is being demolished and I have even less concern for the 1970s swimming pool, all of which are well past their best.
Why he wants to build a space age greenhouse is a mystery. A nice brick and wood building would surely provide him (and his family) with much better security and privacy.
That flat roof will be a constant source of trouble.

I think describing it as a mansion leads us to thinking big and very old.
The new design would never be called a mansion. Eyesore maybe.
