Julius Kraus Vila

Office space for lease in the architecturally unique Julius Kraus villa, built at the beginning of the 20th century by the builder Matěj Blecha and designed by the Art Nouveau and Cubist architect Emil Králíček. With late geometric Art Nouveau and Darmstadt elements, the two-story villa consists of a basement, a raised ground floor, first floor and an attic.

Its impressive facade is decorated with colorful sgraffiti with a floral pattern designed by Antonín Waigant and a pair of polygonal buttresses. On the ground floor, the stunning staircase hall, lined with dark wooden coffered panelling, is next to a reception lounge separated by sliding glass doors. The interior boasts stained glass windows with geometric ornaments, a ceiling with elegant mouldings, and a large fireplace. The main feature of the exterior is a winter garden attached to the entrance level. Other standout exterior elements include a monumental cornice with an ornamental coffered frieze in a stylized geometric pattern and a mansard roof. The villa previously served as the residence of the Australian and Thai ambassador, or as the editorial headquarters of several publications such as ELLE magazine. The interior will undergo a much-needed renovation.

The villa is located in a prestigious residential neighborhood in Prague 6 and is easily accessible by public transport from the center—the Hradčanská (line A) metro center is only several minutes away on foot. Letenská pláň, Stromovka Park, or Chotkovy Sady Gardens are all nearby. It is also surrounded by excellent civic amenities.
