The Brno industrialist in textiles, Moritz Fuhrmann, had an Art Nouveau villa built over the years 1903-1904 in Brno on Sadova street (Parkstrasse), at present Drobného street. His sons sold the house in the year 1913 to the factory owner Alfred Löw-Beer, the father of Grete Tugendhat. Extensive property extending up to Černopolní street belonged to the villa. Alfred Löw-Beer gave his daughter Grete the plot of land at Černopolní street for building a house in the year 1929.
