From the originally spacious apartment at 12 Klatovská Street which belonged to the Vogl family only a dining room and a living room have been preserved. The adaptation of the apartment based on the design by Adolf Loos was made in 1928 for Dr Josef Vogl, a paediatrician and his wife Štěpánka, who was the daughter of the house owner. The interior was created in the apartment of the previous realization by Loos from 1908. At that time, the design was created for the family of entrepreneur Otto Beck. Otto Beck later moved together with the furniture designed by Loos to the Müller's house at 2 Náměstí Míru. Twenty years later, Adolf Loos redesigned the same interior of the apartment for the family of Dr Vogl and this time he included a doctor’s office with a waiting room and an X-ray workplace. Unfortunately, the medical part of the apartment was destroyed together with the bedroom and the children's room which were in the private parts of the apartment and which too, disappeared completely.

 

The preserved salon still boasts its decoration by the cherry wood veneer with built-in frames for Japanese wood-engravings and featuring the adjoining strip of dark green wallpaper. In the axis of the front part of the living room Loos created a distinctive feature of his designs - a fireplace made of red bricks, above it there is a mirror wall, the whole of which is then lined by half columns covered with shell marble. The dining room offers a view of the walls with a yellow travertine tiling and yet another mirror wall which is positioned above the buffet counter. The Vogls fled to exile to escape the Nazis, after the war they fled from Pilsen for the second time, this time to escape the communist totalitarian regime.

 

The preserved premises of their apartment then served as offices as well as a headquarters and a meeting room. The current owner of the premises is the city of Pilsen. The demanding restoration of the apartment was completed in 2014. Both rooms are now furnished by the exact replicas of the original free-standing furniture. The design of repairs and restoration was created by the team of architects led by Professor architect Václav Girsa.
