Architect: Ármin Hegedűs, née Geiger

Szécsény, 1869 – Budapest, 1945, architect

He graduated as an architect in 1890 at the Budapest University of Technology, then made a several year long study tour in Austria, the Netherland, Sweden, Denmark, and Germany. He opened his design office together with Ármin Hegedűs in 1898. Their most beautiful work is the building of the Csáktornya Casino in art nouveau style. Both he and Hegedűs took over individual commissions, as well, but they frequently made plans together. In the 1920s their activity is characterized by art nouveau and the subsequent eclectic, historicizing style. Their most important building is the Török bank at Szervita square. They built the Thermia Palace recreational hotel, the Irma spa and the Pro Patria bath hospital in Pöstyén. The Alexander sanatorium in Pöstyén was designed in an eclectic style pointing towards eclecticism, while the smaller spa building in Daruvár has Oriental features.
The Böhm and Hegedűs office obtained sufficient experience for building spas and hotels, and received numerous commissions (City Spa and hotel in Kiskunfélegyháza, Tisza Spa and hotel in Szolnok, Thermal bath in Eger). The five-story residential house at Gyöngyösi street was built on the basis of the plans made by the Böhm and Hegedűs office in the frame of the small flat building programme.
Ármin Hegedűs took part in the building of Gellért Hotel, the most significant hydro hotel in Hungary: he prepared its plans in late art nouveau style.
