Ignác Šechtl and Josef Jindřich Šechtl: April: Ctibor House, Žižka Square

Burgess Ondřej Čáslavský had this house built around 1532 on the site of what is today Žižka Square. In the Czech Lands at that time Gothic architecture was being superseded by the Renaissance style and this building has features belonging to both periods. Late Gothic features can be seen in the high gable decorated with brick tracery with Rayonnant motifs, while inside the house Renaissance elements are to be found in the painted decoration of the beamed ceiling.
