Reconstruction of former Art Nouveau Hotel Petőfi in Szentes and its sustainable utilization as a cultural-community centre
Summary of project results
The project was implemented by the Municipality of Szentes as project promoter and its project partner Koszta József Museum in Szentendre. Among the goals set, one of the main aims was to ensure the accomplishment of cultural, artistic, and cafeteria-like multicultural functions of the Szentes Art Nouveau House. Main infrastructural functions resulted from project implementation: the lobby, literary café, chamber room, interactive gallery and concert hall. The street facades of the corner building were also renovated taking into account heritage protection considerations and regulations. The Art Nouveau House will offer local artists an opportunity to present their works of art, and provide a home to literary, musical and other events. The project improved the conditions regarding the operation of many local civil organizations, associations, friends and institutions, providing a suitable location for their operations, and also expanding the city's tourist attractions. An accessible community space was also developed, and thanks to this its accessibility by certain disadvantaged groups (primarily handicapped) significantly improved. Further parts of the building can be renewed by future investments.
