The project documents for permission to construct a family residence for Ing. Dr. František Müller on plot no. 216 / 2 in Prague–Střešovice, executed at a scale of 1:100, were submitted by the firm of ‘officially authorised engineers Kapsa & Müller’ in November 1928. The Prague city officials reacted with some degree of incomprehension to a building whose ‘excessively smooth’ facades would clash with their surroundings. The city building office, following the standpoint of the regulatory authorities, extended and finally refused the issuing of a building permit, which helped both the architect and the building gain popularity and attracted the attention of the public.
The red lines on the floor plans and facade elevations are the work of the building office, which disagreed with the positioning of the windows on the facade, as well as the extent of usable areas in the attic rooms.
