Geocache Description:


HR

Hugo Ehrlich (1879 - 1936), bio je hrvatski arhitekt. Rođen je u imućnoj građevinskoj i poduzetničkoj obitelji. Građevinska tvrtka obitelji Ehrlich bila je jedna od najmoćnijih građevinskih firmi u zagrebu, koja se osim izvođenjem i financiranjem izgradnje objekata, bavila i njihovim projektiranjem.

Hugo Ehrlich se nakon školovanja u Beču (Visoka tehnička škola kod arhitekta Karla Koeniga), vrlo brzo uključio u obiteljski posao.

Kada je riječ o Ehrlichovom arhitektonskom izričaju, bitno je napomenuti da, iako je svojim počecima pripadao konzervativnijoj struji, te projektirao u duhu eklektičkog manirizma, u kasnijoj je fazi  napravio odmak od historicizma i bio jedan od prvih arhitekata u Hrvatskoj, koji je počeo projektirati  po načelima arhitektonske moderne, te se priklonio funkcionalističkim i konstruktivističkim rješenjima slobodno oblikovanih tlocrtnih koncepcija i pročišćenih ploha pročelja

Ovaj cahe vas je doveo pred jedno od njegovih najambicioznijih ostvarenja, stambeni kompleks Nadarbine zagrebačke nadbiskupije, odnosno, kako ga danas stanovnici Zagreba od milja zovu – „Vatikan“. Bio je to jedan od najvećih građevinskih poduhvata u tadašnjoj Kraljevini SHS, te je građen u nekoliko zasebnih faza i cjelina  u periodu između 1926. i 1930. godine.

S točke na kojoj stojite, možete opaziti i da je blok „opasao“ jednu malu  baroknu kuriju, a radi se o tzv. Vrtlarevoj kući, izgrađenoj 1790. uz prekrasne parkove i perivoje nadbiskupije, koji su se nekada ovdje nalazili.

Hugo Ehrlich (1879 - 1936), was a Croatian architect. Ehrlich was born in a wealthy family active  in real estate development business. Family has designed, constructed and financed real estate projects.

After he attended technical university in Wien (at Karl Koening studio) he joined family business.

Although he started with a more conservative approach to architecture, soon he developed modern architecture style.

This cache is on the back side of his most ambitious projects, and also one of the biggest real estate projects in Zagreb.

Since the project was financed by the Catholic church, whole estate is colloquial known as „Vatikan“

You can also see a small baroque house in the middle of the whole estate. It is „Gardener's house“, built around 1790 on the beginning of gardens that have existed here in that time.

The beautiful episcopal park and garden in front of the Gardener’s House emerged in what was then the easternmost part of the town. We can only try to picture it, relying on the contemporaries' descriptions. Spreading over the surface of more than ten acres, it presented a harmony of English landscape and French geometrical gardening style.
