From 1888 to 1891 he studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts under Constantin Lipsius . After graduating, he worked first in Munich at Heilmann & Littmann and from 1892 to 1894 in Budapest in the office of the German-born architect Arthur Meinig , who mainly designed city palaces and country houses for the Hungarian aristocracy.
