Dating, names and historical functions

In 1744 the building of the body on the current Brediceanu Street at the corner with Mărăşeşti Street was initiated. Between 1746 and 1747, where today is the building’s main façade, still lay the former “mosque of the Silahdar”.

In 1752, it was called the Commander’s House.

The body building with the casino façade facing the square appears to be completely built only on the 1788 city plan.

 

Architectural style

The building is representative of the late phase of the Baroque.

Notable are the Corinthian-style pillars with double edges, which give the composition a vibrant movement, typical of the Baroque visual language.

The rounded corner in the north-east of the building (i.e. to Old City Hall), a rococo element, is also remarkable.
