In 1902 Neuhaus Ernő pays 4,098 crowns for two plots of land located between Gheorghe Doja Street and the square with the same name. Here he will erect two buildings that, although symmetrical, have very different treatments of the facades.

The building closest to the tram line is remarkable for the bow window on the corner, decorated with elaborate anthropomorphic figures depicting woman’s heads typical of the 1900s architecture. Another characteristic of this building is represented by the surfaces decorated with geometrical patterns, another departure from the architectural language of the 19th century.

Neuhaus Ernő, entrepreneur, had another apartment building on 6 General Henri Berthelor street.
