Ernő Neuhausz Palace is an essential part of the ensemble of Secession-style palaces in Victoriei Square, one of the city’s main landmarks. Built by local entrepreneur Ernő Neuhausz in 1910, the building is situated in a continuous street-front of monumental Secession buildings, being neighboured by the Lloyd and Arnold Merbl Palaces. Having a commercial ground floor and three upper stories of apartments for rent, the building is notable through the artistic composition of its façade, typical of the second phase of the Secession movement: geometrical and simplified ornamentation, with subtle alternations of texture on the façade. The oversized pediment stands out, being analogous with the two oversized oriel windows, which are connected through a series of loggias.
