Karel Chochola was the most productive interwar architect in České Budějovice, besides designing his own house.

Description

The house consists of three cubic blocks. They are arranged in stages with the ​​the ground floor as the largest area of all. The roof of the small porch features a roof terrace for the first floor. The living area of ​​the first floor is slightly smaller than on the ground floor. The highest building cube is located in the east and houses the stairway. This leads up to the house's roof, which has been probably once used as a roof terrace. The garden side in the north of the house is slightly lower. This made it possible to design the souterrain with pillars, giving space for a small covered area.


History

Karel Chochola built his own house between 1929 and 1930 on a street where most of the other houses are 10-20 years older. Due to the tragic fate of the architect, it is possible that the house was converted into an apartment building already in the 1940s.
