The House At The Stone Bell (Dům U Kamenného zvonu)
Prague, Czech Republic
The origins of the Stone Bell House date, according to the latest constructional and historical researches, from the second half of the 13th century, when a lengthwise building behind the monumental spiral corner with massive perimeter walls was built. The oldest parts of the building are preserved in the cellars and on the ground floor of the south wing. Its iconographic theme of the richly decorated façade celebrates the idea of kingdom and the royal family — due to this, the assumption arose that the building owner came from within the royal court circle.
Preceding a demanding restoration of the Stone Bell House, during which the neo‐baroque facade from the 19th century was pulled down, extensive constructional and historical research was carried out, which revealed the Gothic façade. Restoration was finished in 1988 and the City declared the building to serve as the GHMP exhibition space for its important projects.
