An Art Nouveau villa, exceptional even on a global scale

This crucial piece of Art Nouveau architecture is as significant as Brno’s functionalist villas. Located on a steep slope in a forest above the Svratka River in the municipality of Žabovřesky, it represents a monumental leap in the architect’s work, in which he departs from imitating vernacular wooden houses. The central part of the house is the main element: a hall with a staircase which connects the social area on the ground floor with private rooms on the first floor. When designing his own house, Jurkovič was inspired by the then-modern villas of Joseph Maria Olbrich in Darmstadt and Josef Hoffmann in Vienna.

In addition to the permanent exhibition Dušan Jurkovič. The Architect and His House, there are other design and architecture exhibitions to explore.
