Ernst Bartsch tenement is a habitation building located at Gdanska Street N°79, in Bydgoszcz.

Location

The building stands on the western side of Gdanska street, between Cieszkowski street and Świętojańska street. It stands close to remarkable tenements in the same street:

History

The house was built in 1898-1899 for Ernst Bartsch,[1][2] a businessman, by the architect Fritz Weidner, a German builder who came to Bydgoszcz at the end of the 19th century, and had a frantic building activity in the city between 1896 and 1914.

In the same area, Fritz Weidner built houses at the following addresses:

- Mix Ernst tenement and movie theatre at Gdanska St. 10 in 1905;

- Thomas Frankowski Tenement at Gdanska St. 28 in 1897;

- George Sikorski Tenement at Gdańska St. 31, in 1906;

- House at Gdanska St. 34, in 1912;

- Max Rosental Tenement at Gdanska St. 42 in 1905;

- House at Freedom Square 3, in 1903.

At that time of the erection, the address of the tenement was "Danzigerstrasse 46", Bromberg.

From 1906 to 1939 in the ground floor housed a distillery owned by Albert Schmidt,[3] producing vodka and other liqueurs.[4]

Architecture

The house presents forms of German Historicism, in a transitional phase between Eclecticism and Art Nouveau.[5] The central part of the facade is flanked by 2 triangular topped towers.

The whole facade is purposefully designed on asymmetry, which is a specific means for the architect Fritz Weidner to abandon the stucco decoration and arrangements of architectural elements.[6]

The building shows similarities with House at Gdanska Str.91, also designed by Fritz Weidner.
