Text

The Masaryk German School building by Heinrich Blum from 1931 illustrates the influence classicism exerted on the concept of administrative buildings in the interwar period. These tendencies are most visible in the traditional layout of the street front. This consists of a ground-floor base with a central entrance and the body of the structure with a distinctive cornice enhanced by the light-coloured retracted terrace of the top floor. The bare brick of the street facade is segmented only by the axes of windows, from which protrude the row of tall windows of the gym on the first floor resembling the stately piano nobile of Baroque-style palaces. The inner tract facade is more progressive and boasts a glass staircase risalit which reveals the dynamic lines of landings and flights of stairs.
