    The new owner did not only furnish a beautiful and well-functioning boutique hotel into the building of the former Tiszavirág („Mayfly”) pub, but also evoked the eventful history of the house from its ruins. The concept was born as a co-operation of Judit Z. Halmágyi, architect, Dóra Fónagy, architect-interior designer and Orsolya Bakos, the manager of the hotel. A well-established, lively design strategy was used as a start, which reaching beyond the concept of genius loci covered the known history of the building including the unknown details with genuine sincerity. In practice it means the restoration of the details the original design of which was documented by using authentic materials, the replacement of those which were only roughly known, whilst discarding those that were only likely. As a result, it is only patchlike colourful painted surfaces that we see on the vaults of the foyer when arriving via the gate as these murals could not be restored to their originals. Prevailing colours of the original palette of the house such as green, blue and mustard reoccur throughout the building, ranging from the polished paint of the doorframes to the wall colours of the staircase landing to the sophisticated selected design furniture items. The oil paintings gracing the staircase around the glass-walled transparent lift could only be restored to a rather blurred, vaguely recognizable condition which is still capable of evoking the Mediterranean atmosphere. Reconstructed wrought-iron railings, the stairs carved from red marble from Tardos and their marble equals the consoles supporting today’s corridor converted from the former circular external corridor, the ground plan defined by the latter and the magnificent first-floor wrought-iron balcony facing the street are all features evoking the original details of the Romantic-style house.
