#Apartment house #Prague (Praha) #1937
In terms of design, the two almost identical houses are a highlight of functionalist architecture in Prague. The building form has a slight, pleasant rhythm, as the two central areas of the houses are highlighted as oriels. The long windows of the two flats per house are inserted at these points. On the parts, where the facade steps back, are placed the balconies, the doors and windows, which were intended for floriculture. The balconies connect the front and rear facade areas. The perforated metal railings of the balconies are also characteristic. As is typical of the "electric houses" in Prague, the top floor is stepped back, creating a roof terrace.
The flats impress with their size. Most of the three-room-apartments in Antonínská 4 have a living space of 125 sqm. In Antonínská 6 the rooms on the left side (standing in front of the building) from the first until top floor have the biggest apartments four with room-apartments. The apartments to the right come with two living rooms. All living rooms are embellished parquet flooring and large double doors. It is possible to open all the doors, enabling a view from the front balcony room to the window of the room directed to the courtyard. The bathrooms and toilets are located in the central parts of the houses without windows. There are more balconies on the courtyard side.
On this website are pictures and a layout of an apartment.
Built in the years 1937-38, it was in the hands of the first owner until 1939. Antonínská No. 4 was renovated already, No. 6 is still in the original state.
