The facade of the church designed by Samu Petz, built in 1905, holds some elements that deserve special attention. One of them is the mosaic in the lunette above the main entrance, supposedly from Miksa Róth's atelier, another is the central rose window with a protected heritage organ on its other side. In such wise the restoration of the facade meant compound heritage management with a detailed inspection, involving several specialists, and including compatible design solutions for accessibility.
