Architect: Josef Havlíček, Otto Kohn, Karl Kohn

Year of completion: 1938

The majestic complex of fourteen six-story tenement houses is known as Molochov. The term likely originated from the poor experience of local workers, but it may also have arisen due to the incredible mass that lines Letná Plain, represented by the 250-meter-long building. The complex was built in the 1930s according to the design of seven architects. Later, the State Regulatory Commission decided that all the houses would have a unifying facade, designed by architect Josef Havlíček. However, the other participating architects who were supposed to design the individual houses did not miss the opportunity to contribute to the construction. They left their mark on the interiors, which differ in size and internal layout. The entrance halls and small details on the entrance doors are also diverse. The most magnificent entrance, designed by architects Ernst Mühlstein and Victor Fürth, is even lined with white Carrara marble, and the entrance doors are made of polished chrome.
