“Building of the Chamber Probationary”
The one-story residential and commercial building occupies the corner of Beogradska and Nazorova streets. According to the available data, it was built as the seat of the Imperial and royal Provisional, Petrovaradin probably at the beginning of the second half of the 18th century. The functional organization of the space, the structural and applied assembly, architectural details, the solution of the roof structure, as well as the stylistic characteristics of the facade treatment, speak in support of the above.
The house has a base in the shape of the Latin letter “L” with a pedestrian entrance from Beogradska street and a wider vehicular entrance from Nazorova street, which is out of order today.
There are two shops on the ground floor, while the living space is on the first floor. The inner narrow corridor, shifted slightly to the right, in its front part was created by partitioning part of the street bar, which can be seen in the semi-shaped vaulted structure that is partitioned by the wall of the corridor.
Below, the corridor is divided into four bays under spherical vaults. In the middle, on the right, there is a staircase to the first floor with wooden treads and a passage towards Nazorova Street with the entrance to the basement. Further on, the corridor passes into the once open porch that was connected to the wide entrance, at one time probably the main one, from Nazorova Street. The rooms on the ground floor are under semi-circular vaults with arched arches, while on the first floor they have a flat ceiling, except for the corridor and the landing, which are under segmental spherical vaults. The vaulted basement occupies the street part of the building and serves as a shop. The roof is extremely high, covered with pepper tiles with five preserved characteristic chimneys.
The street facade in Beogradska street has four, and in Nazorova, eight axes of openings. The corners are emphasized with shallow moldings, and the longer facade is divided into two equal parts in the middle by a molding. The stucco decoration consists of a divided cornice, simple profiled window frames connected by a cordon cornice, an attic cornice, and slightly accentuated parapets. On the facade, in the area of the ground floor, the original appearance of the characteristic entrance opening with a skylight and wooden double-winged doors with fittings and a wrought iron gate, part of a massive wooden gate and window openings from Nazorova Street have been preserved, while on the first floor all the original window openings have been preserved with characteristic carpentry, including wooden shutters on the first two windows of the first floor at the very corner of Nazorova Street.
