The builder of house No. 564, Michael Brusch, was a member of a very old and widely branched Cheb butchers family. Carl Haberzettl designed a rather indistinctive two-floor building delimited on two sides by rusticated avant-corps in 1875. A room for dressing and cutting meat, a room for butcher’s production, a freezer and storage rooms were located underground, with the butcher’s on the ground floor. Haberzettl also drafted a free-standing freezer in the yard of the house. Builder Bernard Kirschnek prepared a project to create two new shops on the ground floor in 1903. The facade was changed along with the modification of the ground floor and it gained a slightly more decorative character. Whether the gables designed above the avant-corps were actually built is not known. The house remained in the Brusch family ownership until its nationalization in 1946.
