A floor renovation in the Hungarian Opera House? That calls for Rubio Monocoat!

The Hungarian State Opera House was built in 1884 and was in urgent need of renovation in 2016. The Swedish floor in the impressive Auditorium was treated with Oil Plus 2C, giving it a quality protection. In addition, the original colour was reinstated.


The restoration

Since its construction in 1884, Budapest's stately opera house has had two major renovations: in 1912 and in the early 1980s. Over the years, some minor works were also carried out, but by the end of 2016 it was time for a major restoration. The works lasted until March 2022 and provided better acoustics, more modern electrical systems (including a fire alarm), changing rooms and rehearsal rooms for musicians, ... The Swedish floor in the Auditorium was also thoroughly renovated.

Floor treatment with Rubio Monocoat

The oak elements in the Auditorium were treated with Oil Plus 2C. This way, the Swedish floors, tongue-and-groove wooden floors and inlaid elements get an optimal protection that will stand the test of time. To maintain the floor, they will clean the wood with our Universal Soap. If the surface needs an upgrade later, our Universal Maintenance Oil will be used.
