This area close to Széchenyi Square had once been inhabited by small houses from the Middle Ages that fell victim to an ill-conceived city planning motion. The Wedding House (Lakodalmas ház), named so after the neighbouring wedding hall was built as a private project, a rare notion at the time. It was the first house in Pécs designed by Sándor Dévényi who later became an important trend-setter in the town?s architecture. The building houses several stores, four apartments and a motel on cca a thousand square meters. Dévényi?s early buildings, this one in particular, were designed with the express objective to display the legacy of the historic site in the spirit of the loosely-interpreted and acknowledged 'eclecticism'. The facade and interior of the Wedding House evoke the gates of the Romanesque era with its jamb figures, the compass-windows and retaining arches of the Gothic times, the alettes of the Renaissance, the Turkish vaults, the Baroque facade decorations, and the shapes and forms of the Art Nouveau. Despite the diverse materials used, all this becomes a homogeneous, articulated organic unit.
