The structure is an example of a tenement house with a lavish architectural decor and is an important element in the spatial layout of the city.

History

The process of development of individual zones and streets of the suburbs of Zielona Góra began as early as in the 14th century. The growing town needed land for residential, commercial and craft development. The area where the tenement house is located has evolved behind defensive walls quiet late, only in the 17th century. This suburban area, known as the ‘Lower’ (‘Dolny’), is visible on the map dating from 1784. The map shows the current al. Niepodległości, which was an unpaved road intersecting fields and public gardens at that time. Only when Zielona Góra was connected to a railway line in 1871, the road was regulated and plots of land were demarcated for future development, which was shaped mainly in the late 19th century and the early 20th century. Incomplete archival records on the tenement house have been preserved. The records suggest that in 1888 Selma Heider applied for the construction of a house. The design of the building was created by master bricklayer and construction carpenter Tubisch. In 1945 the local government took over ownership of the structure. During the post-war period alterations were made to the interior of the building. Currently, the tenement house is a private property. The body of the building has been preserved in its original state without major changes. The structure is one of the most representative buildings in the city. The tenement house was erected in the eclectic style which came into practice in the 2nd half of the 19th century.

Description

The building is free-standing and is located in the north-eastern part of the city, at the junction of Niepodległości Avenue with Bankowa Street, on a plot of land surrounded with a fence. The estate can be accessed through the entrance located on Niepodległości Avenue or the entrance on Bankowa Street. The plot is partly wooded. The tenement houses was built on a quadrilateral floor plan, with shallow avant-corps on the north and east-facing facades. It has three storeys with a usable loft and a basement. The brick facades feature window openings framed with impressive surrounds, with jerkin heads adorned with decorative motifs. The entire structure is crowned with a pronounced cornice on corbels. The north-facing facade features a three-axis avant-corps with an attic on top. The east-facing facade is accentuated by a much less lavish and two-axis pseudo-avant-corps. The original window frames and interior doors and door frames have been preserved.

Limited access to the monument. Privately owned.
