The house for the member of the National Assembly Antonín Uhlíř was designed with a traditional floor plan with a two-wing layout, but it was made special by a sloping greenhouse on the ground floor, continuing in the upper floors as a glass-walled verandah. In 1936, the house was extended with an overhanging terrace, as designed by Ladislav Žák, which surrounded the house from the eastern side and was connected to the garage.
PhDr. Antonín Uhlíř
PhDr. Antonín Uhlíř (1882-1957) was a philosopher and a secondary school professor at the Czechoslovak Business Academy. He edited the “Hlídka času” magazine and resumed the publishing of the philosophical journal “Česká mysl” (Czech Mind); from after the republic was established in 1918 until 1929, he was a member of the National Assembly. The Uhlíř family moved into their house in 1932, but not for long. Even before WWII, the family of a Czechoslovak officer was already living in it.
