The house was built in 1935 and is one of the most distinguished examples of interbelic architecture in Timişoara, corresponding to the ‘cubist’ current. The building’s architect, Albert Krausz, is considered the architect of interbelic Timişoara, because a lot of the city’s properties in those times bear his signature.

Prior to the construction of the current building, there was another building with a ground floor only, where the Szimberger & Baumwinkler Manufactory, Textile and Haberdashery functioned.

Unfortunately, Dr. Samuel Kohn House in Fabric is currently in an advanced state of decay.
