Guided Tour 2

The Brummel House
58 Husova Street

This guided tour is focused on the reconstructed building of the original one-storey home. This building and its historical façade were changed into a two-generation home for Mr and Mrs Brummel and Mrs Brummel’s mother, Mrs Hedvika Liebstein. The tour begins in the area of the hall, which hides a staircase whose design draws inspiration from the Goethe’s house in Weimar. Moving on, visitors will see a corridor, which includes the food preparation area, a bedroom with Loos’ typical built-in furniture made of cherry wood, and a spacious bathroom located behind the bedroom. Through another small corridor visitors are led to the living room, which features a monumental fire place as well as a terrace with a view over the small back garden. The other rooms are connected in a so-called “enfilade” layout – namely the dining room and yellow lounge, which includes the bedroom of Mrs Liebstein.

The Semler Residence is closed to the public during its reconstruction. It will reopen in 2020.
