A well established presence in the collective memory of the people in Timișoara, this house built in 1909 by the landscape designer Árpád Mühle is today in an advanced state of ruin. The building stands out due to its ”free-floating” position on the plot, surrounded on all sides by vegetation, a layout rarely encountered in Elisabetin.

Under the imagination of Andrei Puică, the house regains once more the integrity of its volumes, and launches, perhaps for the last time, a cry for help in the hope of salvaging itself and the cultural heritage that the Mühle family has left for Timișoara. Andrei's point of view regarding Mühle House can be read in the Stories section.
