There are 13 apartments in Pilsen with interiors designed by the modern architect Adolf Loos – the largest number in Europe after Vienna. Pictured here, the apartment of Dr Josef Vogel at 12 Klatovska St, designed by Loos in the 1920s. The Czech town of Pilsen is European Capital of Culture 2015.

  1. I wasn’t far from Pilsen last week, but didn’t know it is Capiltal of Culture this year, or about this interesting interior architecture. Thanks for sharing, nice photo.

  2. Loos’ interiors are the whole point of his Raumplan architecture. It’s all about changing volumes (So the use of “plan” in it’s naming has me baffled). Somewhere on the web (I cannot seem to find it) is a fine self-run tour of a different residence by Loos, the so-called Haus Wittgenstein. Also, a sketch-up version of Loos’ Villa Müller is on Youtube (Fay Str); turn off the annoying soundtrack while you’re at it.
