Brummel House

The house and its interior was designed in 1928-29 byAdolf Loos, one of the founder of the modern architecture, for Mr. Jan Brummel, his wife Jana and her mother Mrs. Hedvika Liebstein.

The fate of the house and its residents were dramatic. After the occupation of Czechoslovakia by Nazi-German in 1939, the house passed over to German possession and the family was deported to concentration camps, where Hedvika died in the year 1943. Jan and Jana survived the concentratin camps and their liquidation at the end of the war and returned home in 1945.

During the allied air raid over Pilsen in April 1945 the house was damaged, however it was restored after the war. The house managed the creeping destruction, after the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia assumed undisputed control over the country in 1948 and in the end of the 70´s the house was endangered by a total demolition. Thanks to a great effort of citizens of Pilsen and people from abroad, the house was preserved and in 1991 it was returned to the family.

The family started the reconstruction of the house in 2001 and since April, 2015 the house has been opened to public.

Since 2016 the Brummel house has been classified by the Dutch company the Iconic Houses, the international network of architecturally significant houses from the 20th century, among 150 world's most interesting modern house museums that form a unique category of sites open to the public.
