Cheap plots of land and tax breaks for builders in the 1920s led to the construction of many tenement and terrace houses in Hradec Králové. Investors often included builders and architects who designed and built houses for minimal costs, thus increasing the profit from the sale or lease. Such was a project of a terraced fourplex built by architect Josef Sedlák in 1925. The two outer houses had the same, but reversed layout; the two houses in the middle had the same floor plan. The western building no. 562 was later extensively modified. The architect rejected the then very popular decorative forms and designed simple cubic houses. The building exteriors are smooth and enclosed by a crown cornice. Sedlák used a range of avant-garde elements such as corner windows and flat roofs. The lack of ornamental decoration and segmentation of the building made the construction significantly cheaper.
