Architect Ernst Lichtblau was one of the few students of Otto Wagner who approached contem­porary modernism. His indepen­dence was already evident in 1914 when he designed the plans for the so-called Chocolate House with its distinctly sculp­tural ceramic decoration. In the use of motifs from folk art, in forms that already referred to the coming Art Deco and in the shaping of window bands, Lichtblau antici­pated elements of the archi­tecture of the 1920s.
