Construction task: museum and bank together
The rough outline for this building copies the the older museum building from 1910/12. All storeys are on the same level and a also gable roof has been designed. The new building is particularly highlighted by the tower with a clock. The tower was placed between the old building and the new building.
Since the house has a solid natural setin base, we assume that it is constructed with bricks.
The Sorb minority lives in the region around Bautzen. The city of Bautzen (German) or Budyšin (Sorbian) is the capital of the Sorbs in the German federal country Saxony. That's why a lot of things are signposted in two languages. The current name of the savings bank is Kreissparkasse Bautzen in German and Wokrjesna nalutowarnja Budyšin in Sorbian. This inscription is attached to the building.
Since the city museum needed a structural extension, they joined the plans with the local savings bank. Both institutions have used the building together since 1931.
A similar multifunctional building used by a bank and the city museum was built some years later in Železný Brod, Czechia.
