Timisoara, Romania - Rehabilitation & New Projects in Historical Areas

Timisoara, the city with the most historical buildings in Romania, have a large project of rehabilitation and economic revitalization of historical districts.

The project takes into account the three historical districts Timişoarei: Cetate, Iosefin, Fabric. In these neighborhoods live half the population of Timisoara, being accommodated in the 44,000 buildings, of which 33% is the historical buildings - those constructed before 1940. In the analysis, concluded that Cetate would be necessary investment of 85 million euros, in Iosefin approximately 55 million, and Fabric 42 million.

This program of rehabilitation of buildings does not only their outer coating. The program is more complex, covers more components, such as strengthening and repair of buildings (structures strengthen the resistance of the building, restoration of the roof where applicable), improved interior comfort, (replacement of windows, fitting with the minimum utility necessary, for example, arranging for individual toilets where needed) and improving interior and exterior appearance (restoration of the ornaments and particularly facades, architectural style and reconstruct the original color of the building).



For ease of viewing these projects, we divided the area into three districts with small modifications to the proposal presented above.

Fabric - History by Octavian Lescu

Neighborhood Fabric growing since 1720, what remained of the Palanca Mare suburbs, which since the siege in 1716, was destroyed. Fabric neighborhood took this name because of the large number of factories, which were in the area.

Official name of neighborhood Fabric received only in 1744. Fabric neighborhood situated in the eastern part of the city, is the first neighborhood that was formed around the Fortress and the greater area of land for housing, about 500 hectares. From Citadel, the entry into residential Fabric is made from Decebal bridge.

Moving to the left of the bridge appear Spa Neptune, and the right the Queen Mary Park, People's Park today. This park was initiated and arranged by General John Coronini Cronberg, Banat governor in 1850. In the middle of the park is a nice flag for fanfare, and nearby was a Swiss-style restaurant, behind which there is high bust citizens, the initiator of this park, Cronini count. In 1910 City Hall replanted the park and building the monumental gates of entries. We continue our way on Andrassy ut (today Boulevard 3 August 1919), in Romanilor Square, where we found the church Roman Catholic "MILLENNIUM" built between 1896-1901. A monumental church, built during the commemoration of 1000 years since the coming of Hungarians in Plain Panoniei.

In Fabric neighborhood was the center of handicrafts and industrial concerns, unlike Cetate where trade prevails. On Stefan cel Mare street were built Breweries Timisoreana, and to the end of Buziaşului street, find boots factory Turul, alongside a ironwork factory houses, money, soap factory and many other factories.

Fabric vineyards, which in addition to arable land, and have extensive plantings of life and have produced a mass of white wine fruity, wine called Green Forest. This species has disappeared in the year 1887, when he disappeared completely because of phylloxera that haunted the area.

From now on, the National Theater Timişoara will still have room for shows in town. Besides the hall of the premises of the institution, TNT has 2 room (former gym behind the Continental Hotel, which long ago was imperial circle). Now, after several discussions, the Jewish community in Timisoara have agreed that the theatrical to some of their performances in the synagogue Fabric. Theater has the right to use in 35 years, becoming Synagogue Hall 3 of TNT. National Theater obliged him to renovate synagogue and then to keep its status.
Fabric of the synagogue is built in Moorish style (it is therefore known as Synagogue Mauri), place it before there is a smaller temple. Church was built in 1899, was designed by architect Leopold Baumhorn and built by entrepreneur Josef Kremmer Timisoara.
Now the synagogue is in a deplorable state. There have been, for years, repair, rehabilitation, but for now the building will regain the beauty of yesteryear.

I like the new facades too.

I think is the most ambitious restoration project in terms of re-function of a historical building in the city.
