Škarka’s Villa was designed by Dragiša Brašovan, a leading figure in Serbian architecture in the interwar period between WWI and WWII. The house, which was built for Czech engineer Rihard Škark who was the director of the Prague Credit Bank branch in Belgrade, was constructed from 1926 – 1927. The villa is an example of the architecture of Belgrade’s civil society and is a work of Brašovan pre-modern period.
Škarka’s Villa is an object of significant architectural and cultural-historical value. Besides the House of Genčić, Škarka’s Villa is the best example of Brašovan’s city villa design and is one of the rare buildings with a romantic spirit that has taken its place as an exceptional example of architecture in Belgrade’s interwar period.
