VILLA WEINBERGER

VILLA WEINBERGER

- A bit of upper-class sumptuousness in the inter-war Znojmo –
The Jewish factory owner Alfred Weinberger and his spouse Fanni established a prosperous leather manufacturing factory in the area behind the Znojmo Railway Station in the 1880s. They also bought some empty lots on Wilson Street (now Rudoleckého) by the railway station where they intended to build two luxurious villas. In 1926 they commissioned the Brno architect Norbert Troller to design the first of them (Rudoleckého 19) - a representative neo-classicist villa for their first-born son Hans Weinberger and his wife Lisbeth. Final adjustments and stylish interior furnishings were projected by Armand Weiser, a renowned Viennese architect. The result flabbergasted not only the Znojmo elite of that time, but also resonated in the foreign press: articles and photos about the Villa Weinberger appeared in the German magazines Innen-Dekoration, Bau- und Werkkunst or Moderne Welt. Now the villa functions as a kindergarten. Architect Armand Weiser also designed the other villa, or rather a residential house, for the Weinbergers themselves and their younger son (Rudoleckého 21). It was built in 1929 and it reflects modern, functionalist influences. The Weinberger family, however, did not have much time left to enjoy their new residences: when Hitler made Znojmo part of the Third Reich, they had left for safer places.
