Plans for the Bárd-brothers’ House, 1906
Budapest, XIV. Ilka utca 44.

The Bárd brothers, who had commissioned the interior design of their music shop in 1900, had a villa planned by Lajta in 1906, which, however, never got constructed. The plans can be considered a variant of the second version of the plans for Dezső Malonyay’s villa, but the many corresponding details (roof terrace, ground floor bow-window with a terrace on its top, high roof with gables and gambrels etc.) in this case create a much more disconcerting general impression.
