The part of the building overlooking the Vodickova Street was designed in the Art Nouveau style and spots the light of this world between 1901 and 1904. The second part, which is adjacent to the V Jámě Street was built between 1927 and 1929.
Mr. Novák took his inspiration from the numerous exquisite Parisian department stores. The older part of the building is designed as a two-storey store, which is dominated by an impressive mosaic with allegoric scenes representing Trade and Industry. The author of this lovely design is Jan Preisler, a well-known symbolist painter. Mr. Novák ́s dream came true and the first ever department store in Prague got engraved into the minds of the Prague ́s residents as one of the best places, where to purchase anything that had to do with ready-to-wear clothes, clothing materials, hats and gloves, haberdashery goods, carpets, curtains, furniture, home accessories and even cosmetics. The unique Art Nouveau painting on the main side of the building coupled with the great selection of shops, made Dům U Nováků one of the finest shopping destinations in Prague.
