#Apartment house #Prague (Praha) #1936
The house is a narrower version of architect Jan Gillar's house at 6 Vinařská Street. The central oriel with ribbon windows gives the house its particularly modern-looking shape, reinforced by the corner windows. On both sides are located the vertical rows of windows with casement windows. The upper floor is slightly set back and offers space for a roof terrace. The entrance door is set below the oriel on the left to break the house's symmetry.
We do not know whether the window frames were always painted red. In any case, they give the house a fresh look.
The house was built in 1936 as one of the typical representatives of Prague apartment buildings from the 1930s.
