Villa Primavesi

  Univerzitní 224/7, Olomouc      (+ 420) 585 23 48 16     more than a year ago

This Art Nouveau villa of the Viennese style has a layout of an English hall. The villa is located in a garden above the city walls and is sensitively incorporated into the historic city center. The villa was built as a home of the banking family of Otto and Eugenia Primavesi. The interior decoration was created by leading artists of that time. One of them was the family friend Anton Hanak, who designed the dining-room’s panelling with the copper fountain „Viva Aqua“, the night-watchman’s statue and a number of other works of art. Other noted artists who took part in the villa’s decoration included the designer and architect Josef Hoffman and the painter Gustav Klimt. Only a fraction of the artistically valuable original decoration of the villa has been preserved: the mosaic in the lobby, a fountain in the hall and a pillar with a statue of Prayer in the garden. Today the villa is partially open to public in the form of the Primavesi Gallery.
