The tradition of the building is still alive today: the building has been used by craft associations since the 18th century. As one of the few, it has retained its original stylistic features.

History

The house was built for the weavers' guild of Prudnik in the mid-18th century. In the 1960s, it housed the administration of the Guild of Various Crafts, now the House of Crafts and a restaurant.

Description

The building is located at the corner of Krótka Street and Łukowa Street. It is a multi-storey, masonry and plastered structure. The façade is surmounted by a Baroque twin gable, which is covered by a half-hipped roof. The gable has two zones separated by a cornice supported by pilasters; in the lower zone on the axis there is a blind window topped with an arch. The façades feature frame divisions; rectangular windows are decorated with surrounds. The south façade is seven-axial; in the gable topped with a roof pediment on the sides there are round windows. The building can be entered from the south and the west. The interiors are covered with preserved original vaults: barrel vault with lunettes and double barrel vault.
