In prague, one of Loos's seminal building has been rescued from neglect and obscurity and faithfully restored.
while many twentieth-century building evoke a strong emotional response, only a handful of small-scale works have the same effect. Within this category belongs adolf Loos' Villa Muller in Prague.
The villa was designed within a few weeks in 1928 and built in Prague 1929-30 for Frantisek Muller, an Enguneer and partner of a large construction firm, Kapsa & Muller. It stands on a steep slope overlooking surrounding villas and close to a main avenue to the city centre. At first sight it appears almost too simplistic, its exterior refusing to divulge interior splendour and fulfilling Loos' notion ehat 'the building should be dumb ouside and only reveal wealth inside'.
