Villa Tugendhat in Brno, Czech Republic, was built for Fritz and Gerta Tugendhat, an entrepreneuring couple in the textile industry. Employing Mies van der Rohe, Mr. Tugendhat stressed that he was "utterly horrified by rooms full of figurines and blankets". The villa, built between 1927-1930, consists of three floors. On the first one (the basement floor), utility areas for maintenance and technical operations of the house are located. The second, the main floor, contains a representative living room, a library, a winter garden and a dining room. On the third floor are bedrooms and a bathroom. The building is constructed with a steel frame, which permits to create a spatial and bright interior. The whole interior of the house was also designed especially for the Tugendhats, with the use of sophisticated materials like travertine, milk glass, chrome-coated metal, stainless steel, honey-yellow onyx and exotic wood.
