František Bílek built his studio villa in the Prague Castle District (Hradčany) in 1910–1911 based on his own design, and its architecture is deeply rooted in his artistic philosophy and ideas. Bílek envisioned his Prague villa as an expression of “life as a field overflowing with ripe corn” and its untraditional ground plan was derived from the image of a scythe harvesting grain. The shape of the villa’s columns reminiscent of old Egyptian temple architecture is likewise remarkable. The exposed exterior brickwork and rough cut stone bring the villa’s architecture closer to nature and to traditional craftsmanship.

This two-storey Art Nouveau villa also includes an adjacent landscaped garden.

Wedding ceremonies may be held on any day of the week, both in the artist’s studio inside the villa and outside in the adjacent garden. Due to the size and layout of the villa’s interior the maximum capacity for each ceremony is 20 guests. The villa’s garden is a further attractive space which can be used for apero after the ceremony.
