Lipót Baumhorn’s plans for the building of the State Girl High School’s palace were approved in 1902, resulting in an edifice raised on the ground where the former citadel’s walls lay, designed as a collaboration between Baumhorn and Timișoara’s Jakab Klein, with contributions from local architect Karl Hart, the building’s constructor. With Romanesque decoration mixed in typical Baumhorn fashion with Secession details, the building stands out through the play of its different textures, its exposed brick details creating tracery that is reminiscent of medieval architecture.
