Rental apartment building on Jungmann Square

Architect: Rudolf Stockar

Year of completion: 1922

On the narrow Gothic plot at Jungmann Square, there stood a house since the time of Charles IV. The later neoclassical building, of which the ribbed vaults and staircase on the ground floor have been preserved to this day, underwent several renovations over the centuries. The most significant transformation took place in the 1920s, according to Rudolf Stockar’s design. The proposal, prepared for the merchant Gustav Vinařský, was influenced by Rondocubism, which is particularly evident on the facade facing Jungmann Square.

The single-axis facade is bordered on the sides by convex red pilasters and horizontally divided by a composition of cornices and window sills of the same color. The most distinctive elements are the rounded bay window on the fourth floor and the arched gable at the very top of the building. Over the years, the ground floor has been modified, and further changes to the house have been ongoing. Nevertheless, this protected monument still represents a high-quality example of Czech Rondocubism.
