Building permit February 27, 1906, use permit January 9, 1907.

Architectural style
1900s style, the szeceszió movement.
Architect László Székely

From architect Székely’s buildings, this one is closest to the visual expression of the “flower stages” of the Art Nouveau and Coup de Fouet movements in Belgium and France.

The stairwell on the ground floor has a niche whose frame is richly decorated. The courtyard is also interesting (and typical); one can see from the courtyard as the stairwell egresses on the outside (jutty), probably with the intention to make the most of the building’s volume and the courtyard itself.

Architect Mihai Botescu (who made the photographs for the reverential volume dedicated to architect László Székely) believes that, because of the composition and details of the main façade and of the entrance’s details and proportions and stairway, the building is one of the most successful examples of 1900s architecture in Timişoara.

Commissioner
Ferencz(sic) Emmer

Access
On the ground floor there are shops and a bar that partially occupies the 1st floor.

The building (with access from the courtyard) houses nowadays apartments and small company headquarters. You can enter the courtyard and go up the stairwell (there is an intercom from the street, but the door is often open, especially in the mornings), these being interesting to visit.
