The public house of Prosvita Society is a vivid example of Art Deco style with reminiscence of Cubism. The building has three floors that end with triangular pediment. A massive portal and balcony of the second floor are located at the central axis of building composition. The portal is surrounded by large display windows on the first floor.
The first floor is decorated with four ornamental counter-reliefs making an allusion to the famous icon of Cubism in Prague – Králíčkova Lucerna 1911-1913 – a street lamp named after its author, architect Emil Králíček. The decoration of the first floor is made with faux stonework, but now its surface is painted. The second and the third floors of the façade is a synthesis of decorative reliefs of Art Deco style and reinterpreted baroque elements – semi-circular windows, protruded cornice, floral ornaments on pediment tympanum, etc.
