The two twin buildings mirroring each other are connected by a commercial corridor at ground level and have been designed by the architect Henrik Telkes from Timișoara. They belonged to twin brothers Nandor and Tamas Csermák.

The building permit for the two palaces was issued on 11 July 1911. The works were completed in 1912, the palaces being provided together with a total of 38 apartments and 72 rooms. Studying old maps of the city, one notices the local authorities’ plan to build a commercial passageway between Iuliu Maniu Boulevard (formerly Fröbel Street) and Văcărescu Street (formerly Bem Street), a plan that was never carried out. The buildings display the style typical of the 1900s, with abstract, geometrical decorations.

The buildings display the style typical of the 1900s, with abstract, geometrical decorations. The fact that presently only one of the two buildings has been restored allows the passers-by to compare different hypostasis of built environment.
