A house with a pleasant rhythm and harmony.


A house that stands out in elegance, as the proportions were chosen very well. The shops are on the ground floor and the flats are situated above. The first floor is designed with casement windows. This gives it a somewhat flatter appearance and ties in with the mezzanine floors typical for older Prague houses. From the 2nd to the 5th floor, French windows are inserted at the edges. In the middle of the building, a small avant-corps with ribbon windows emerges from the 2nd-5th floor. Only the middle part of those ribbon windows can be opened as a casement window. It is precisely this offset, on the one hand avant-corps a little further forward, on the other hand the side facades set back with the larger, long windows, that gives the house a pleasant rhythm and harmony. The 6th floor has balconies on the avant-corps. The smaller flats on the 7th floor are equipped with roof terraces. On the courtyard side, small balconies are added.The front facade is cladded with black tiles on the ground floor and with white tiles on the upper floors.


The house was built between 1938 and 1939.
