Apartment buildings of Pension Institute

C269

Jindřich Kumpošt built apartment buildings for Pension Institute employees in the new development at the base of Kraví hora in 1926. Each floor of these two seven-level buildings on rectangular ground plans contained three small one-room apartments whose living rooms look out on the street while the stairs and service facilities face the inner yard. The building is set back a little from the street line and the entrance is concealed by a support wall delimiting the front garden.
The facade is, in the spirit of modern purist aesthetics, only segmented by rows of grid windows with protruding frames and pronounced molding; on the right, there is a lean corner alcove merging into the gable wall of the adjoining structure. The extension with loggias at the top of the building was added later.
