#Villa #Prague (Praha) #1932
A typical villa with Loos's concept "raumplan" and typical details for Loos's work, like terraces and pergolas.
On this website is a good summary of the villa.
The villa is open to public and on the website are beautiful pictures of the interior.
This villa is Adolf Loos's last work. He became ill, that's why Karel Lhota finished the construction. He also designed the building's interiors. The family Winternitz lived in this villa until 1943. They were Jews, so the German Nazis took over the house and sold it to the City of Prague. A kindergarten was in use up to the year 1997. In 1991, David Cysař, a great-grandchild of Winternitz, demanded the restitution of the family's building. In 1999 started the renovation of the villa, that lasted for three years.
