Villa Bilek, Prague

4.1
#72 of 166 in Museums in Prague
The Villa Bílek is a house designed by the Czech sculptor and architect František Bílek in 1911. The villa is located in Hradčany neighbourhood of Prague, Czech Republic, several minutes walk from Hradčanská metro station or Prague Castle. It was designed originally for Bílek himself as his residence and studio.Located on site of former city walls the villa has an unusual shape resembling trace of a scythe in a field. The brickwork masonry is articulated by pillars in form of corn sheaves which evoke Egyptian architecture. Through this building Bílek, who was a deeply religious artist, tried to express his view on substance of life.Villa Bílek has been maintained by Gallery of the Capital City of Prague since 1963. It houses a public exposition that introduces many works by Bílek, as well as original interior fittings and furniture collection which was made according to his design.

  • The Symbolist František Bílek, sculptor and graphic artist presents his work of art in his villa and Studio! Honest, spiritual and unique. The first building with a flat roof in Prague made in 1911, built like a corn field, can have a strong morale effect. For our today's modern life in a hurry is the Villa Bílek a haven and inspiration in the middle of the city.
