Description

The building masses have been solved particularly elegantly on the southern and eastern sides. Above the ground floor, the facade opens up to provide space for a terrace. Above the first floor is situated a roof terrace, for which the second floor was set back to provide more space.
The architect increased the visual appeal by placing a winter garden next to the terrace on the first floor.
In 2010, further winter gardens were added during the renovation work, which do not really support the sculptural balance of the building. 

On this website are some more information and some historical photos.

History

Pietschmann liked Katona's other two villas in the street. He ordered probably the most striking and extravagant of them. After the Pietschmann family was expelled in 1945, the villa was immediately converted into a kindergarten.

In the otherwise rather conservative surroundings of Ústí nad Labem of the 1930s, this villa literally stands out.
