Villa Müller

World-famous Modern house, key building by architect Adolf Loos.

The building was commissioned by František Müller and his wife, Milada Müllerová. Mr. Müller was an engineer and co-owned a construction company called Kapsa and Müller. The company specialized in reinforced concrete, developing new construction techniques.

Known as an innovative landmark of early modernist architecture, the Villa Müller embodies Loos’ ideas of economy and functionality. The spatial design, known as ‘Raumplan’, is evident in the multi-level parts of individual rooms, indicating their function and symbolic importance. Raumplan is exhibited in the interior as well as the exterior.

Location: Nad Hradním vodojemem 14, Prague, Czech Republic, central eastern Europe

The Villa Müller was examined and discussed by architectural historian Beatriz Colomina in the book Sexuality and Space, published in 1992. The publication focused on the relationships between sexuality and space within the structure.
