A luxurious villa designed by Austrian and Czechoslovak architect Adolf Loos, the author of influential essay 'Ornament and Crime' among others. The villa was built in the years 1928-1930, at the same time as the famous Mies Van der Rohe's Tugendhat Villa in Brno. Adolf Loos considered Müller Villa to be his most beautiful house and it is also the building where he most perfectly embodied the ideas of his Raumplan. The villa, including its interiors, has been renovated and restored to its original 1930 appearance in the late 1990s. Now Müller Villa is one of the most authentic and best preserved of Adolf Loos' works. It is possible to visit the Müller Villa by guided tour which has to be booked in advance by telephone or through the official website.
