After Karl Langer already laid the foundations for its residential house he asked Plecnik for help. Langer got permission to build on the basis of his own, but not particularly original plan. Since the foundation was already made, Plecnik could change only the facade, staircases and loggia. There are several stylistic influences specially of the Viennese Secession, although Plecnik used some motifs drawn from Belgian and French modern art. Plecnik still used Wagner's principle of "textural facade". Three-storey house was built the then Viennese residential culture. Road facade is designed as a single large carpet through the folding surface stresses the importance of individual rooms inside. Facade and interior staircase interesting to show the effects of different styles.
