comedor is in the ‘savoy palace’ building, which was designed by the famous czech architect
karel kotas for a commission by the italian insurance company riunione adriatica di sicurta (1927).
the building contained apartments, shops, a café and a casino
karel kotas (1894–1973) was a student of the renowned czech architect jan kotěra. he came to ostrava in 1925
and remained the city’s top architect for more than a decade. he began his career working for the city council,
supervising the construction of ostrava’s new city hall, but two years later he won a competition
with his design for a bank in the city centre (now náměstí dr. e. beneše, just one block west of the comedor).
in the same year he was commissioned to design the riunione adriatica building on zámecká street,
where he created an interesting contrast featuring sober tiled facades with light and airy balconies
combined with striking figural sculptures in the corner section, accentuated by a tall corner tower
inspired by mediterranean architectural traditions.. kotas’s successes continued with his design for the brouk & babka
department store at smetanovo náměstí (opposite the antonín dvořák theatre). kotas left ostrava in 1932
for unknown reasons. he later worked in teplice nad bečvou, rožnov pod radhoštěm, brno and prague,
but he never managed to repeat the success he had achieved in ostrava
