František Bílek - Design for a Congregation Hall for the Czecoslovak Hussite Church in Chýnov, perspective views
In addition to the church house for Tábor, the one designed for Chýnov significantly departs from the other designs of church houses with unspecified locations. The Chýnov design has no usual ground plans, only two perspective views. The big one represents a structure inspired by a classical temple; elevated on a high pedestal (for the church house rooms and a flat, as it emerges from comparisons with similar designs of this designer) flanked by tall columns with spaces for bells at the corners. The left part reveals a subtle drawing of the interior with accentuated light falling onto the crucifix.
