Under the National Hauszmann Program, St Stephen’s Hall is being authentically recreated. Its internal layout, materials, decoration and furnishings all follow Hauszmann’s original plans. Design has been assisted by surviving plans, sketches and photographs, and the fittings and furniture are being made in about twenty workshops throughout the country by craftspeople who are using original materials to produce the ornate furnishings with the highest level of accuracy.
The work of today’s artists and craftspeople are worthy of the words by which Hauszmann, one hundred years ago, characterised the products of his associates:
I must pay tribute to the fine artists and artisans who took part in producing this work, which in its material and the quality of execution will I believe be widely recognised abroad.
