The renovation of the old two-storey house and its interior equipment was designed by Adolf Loos for Jana and Jan Brummels in 58 Husova Street. The original house was built in the Neo-Rennaisance style in the period 1885 – 1886 and was later bought by the Liebstein family who owned wood selling company located next to the house.

Adolf Loos cooperated on this project with his Pilsen colleague Karel Lhota. The plans were created in 1927, a year later the work was commenced and it was finished in 1929. The two-generation apartment connected the luxurious apartment of Jan and Jana Brummel with private rooms of Hedvika Liebstein via the area of a shared dining room.

This dining room is decorated by the wall covers created of Canadian poplar tree; the room was dominated by a fresco imitating a view from a window into Italian landscape with several village people in gondola boats on the river. The fresco was painted by a young Austrian artist Robert Aigner. The living room of the Brummel House created the centre piece, the walls were covered by oak tree boards but the dominating point is a serially produced replica of a Provance-style fire place. The fire place had a special function of attracting attention of the house visitors towards the interior, similarly to the fresco by Aigner in the adjacent dining room. The reason for this was the fact that the surroundings of the house were not really attractive, with growing industrial companies of the Pilsen suburb and especially with the large area of the Skoda plants. The corridor was connected to a bedroom which then continued into a luxurious bathroom. Behind the dining room the guests continued into the yellow room which was used as a study by Mrs Liebstein. Also those private rooms were completed by a bedroom and a bathroom. The ground floor of the house was taken by the company premises and three garages. They also continued into the house extension which created another part of the Brummel House.

The house survived not only the massive bombing of the Skoda plants at the end of the World War II but also the attempts of various offices to demolish the house in 1980s as the area of the house should have been used for building of the newly planned central bus station. After the war the house was returned back to the original owners of the house who survived their imprisonment in concentration camps.

Today the Loos Interiors in 58 Husova Street are open for public as a part of the guided tour called The Brummel House.
