    The historicizing-Art Nouveau style complex of the Gas Works in Óbuda was built in 1910-13 after designs by Károly Reichl and Albert Weisz. The single surviving building of the complex with its preserved chimney is made up of two parts of different technology of construction. The single-floor section derives from the original construction phase of the gas works: it is a hall structure with a rectangular floorplan and a hipped pitched roof clad in bicoloured brick facework. As if it was growing out of the chimney supporting it, the extension shows with its modest extroversion and, resulting from this, its vertical opening up that actually it is an extension, an integral continuation.
