Description Change this

The building occupies a corner plot at the crossing of the Frankel Leó utca and Fekete Sas utca. The corner is accentuated by a terraced block, with the individual terrace walls painted in different, vivid, warm colors. The apartments are served by two staircases with elevators. The façade is covered with limestone, while colourful ceramic tiles and mettlachi were used for the foyers.

The building is home of a famous café, Bambi (or Bambi presszó) since 1961.
