 architects` note:
As the first step in the refurbishment and expansion of the Metropolitan Ervin Szabó Library, the Music Collection was moved to a new place. The building, built in romanticist style in 1867, was designed by Miklós Ybl for Countess Pálffy. Before we converted it into a library, the building had been in a bad condition, the original interiors were only preserved in a small part of the gorund floor. The reconstruction was based on the contemporary pieces extant - for instance, old doors. The courtyard on the corner of the streets was built by relying on the remaining sketches of Ybl.
