Rental house Růžová

Architect: Bohumír Kozák

Year of completion: 1922

Růžová Street in Nové Město is very narrow, so not everyone passing by may notice the house with its Rondocubist facade adorned with rounded details. Originally, there was a Neoclassical house on the plot, built in 1841 by architect Karel Duchoslav. However, at the beginning of the 1920s, it was replaced with a newly built semi-detached house in the spirit of national decorativism, following a request from the banking office of the Ministry of Finance. Unlike other buildings from this period, it is not vibrant in colors and is executed solely in cream-white. However, the facade itself, particularly the high order of the central axis, is filled with Rondocubist details – sculptural balcony consoles, parapets with circular motifs, and entranceways topped with semicircular pediments and a series of undercut cornices. The name of the architect is even incorporated into the facade, engraved on the ground floor at the right end of the outer pillar. The interior of the building is also designed in the same style, featuring beautiful stucco decoration on the walls and ceiling, stone-clad staircase, and terrazzo mosaic flooring.
