The construction of the present Andrássy Avenue (before called Sugár street), registered as part of the world heritage, began 1876-1877 and within ten years most of the houses were completed. The eclectic apartment house No. 19 on the corner of the Andrássy Avenue and the Székely Mihály street was built in 1881as a part of the first section the Sugár street to the Octogon. The three-floor building with inner court, planed from Vilmos Freund, is structurally and formally a representative piece. This national monument was built for the middle class, the ornaments and details were formed accordingly. The couple of sculpture over the entrance, the high reliefs by the archcorners and the couple of puttos over the wall openings with arches has a highest importance.
So tomorrow is the day when this door will be open...
