Prague Cubist Architecture | Kovarovic Villa

Kovarovic Villa

Located under the imposing rocks of Vysehrad is a small area home to an interesting assembly of buildings, the neo Classical Villa by Emil Kralicek, the Sequens Villa, Modern in design, by Otakar Novotny, and the impressive Cubist Kovarovic Villa by Josef Chochol. Kovarovic Villa is a must see for lovers of architecture, following of course, a viewing of the House of the Black Madonna. The villa is a wonderful expression of Cubism, inspired by the works of Braque and Picasso. Not only is the house Cubist in design, so is the garden layout and flowerbeds, the surrounding metal fence, and even the steps. The facade of the building is constantly complemented by the play of light beams bouncing off the cubic forms, creating interesting shadows and animation.
