Architect Zdeněk Lukeš will guide you through the iconic Villa Müller in Prague built by Adolf Loos in 1928-1930 for František Müller, the director of the construction company.
The Villa Müller is the most significant work of modern architecture in Prague, a true masterpiece by the Brno-born pioneer of modern architecture Adolf Loos.
The Villa is a prime example of the Raumplan, an innovative architectural concept. Come explore the complex interior structured into multiple levels, with the central space serving as the main living room. There are also a few adjacent rooms, cleverly arranged and all connected by a staircase. On top of the complex building construction featuring multiple height levels, there is a terrace on the flat roof offering beautiful views. Despite all this, the Villa looks quite simple from the outside.
Since 1995 the Villa has been managed by the City of Prague Museum. In 2000, the Villa has undergone a successful and elaborate restoration process.
