The current building: Salamon Brück – building permit April 16, 1910, use permit June 18, 1911.

Names and historical functions

1828 – owner Peter Zivkovich (Zsifkovits, Jivcovici ). The “La Crucea de Aur“ (“The Golden Cross”) Pharmacy was demolished.

Architectural style

The building was initially made in the Austrian Baroque style.

The present day building is made in the 1900s style, the szeceszió movement.

Arch. László Székely, builder arch. Arnold Merbl.

The ground floor and first floor are a base for the two upper floors, with the 1900s architectural forms. The first floor has balconies enclosed with glass curtain walls, typical for the Art Nouveau movement. The two leveled bow-window and the roof’s “played” forms characterize the “szeceszió” movement.

Other information

At the ground floor, there were shops (towards Mercy St.) and facing Unirii Square there was an old pharmacy, with partially original furniture and showcases;  the stained glass at the top of the showcase on which “pharmacy” is written in three languages is remarkable – Romanian, German and Hungarian (probably these stained glass windows come from the interwar period).

Upstairs there were houses.


For the building site, architect Merbl had built a wooden shack. All the press spoke when somebody “broke in”, hoping to find large sums of money. The shack, a temporary site office, was however empty!
