Stojan Titelbah also spelled Stojan Titelbach (Serbian Cyrillic: Стојан Тителбах; Belgrade, Serbia, 1877 - Corfu, Greece, 1916) was a Serbian architect who worked in the Serbian metropolis Belgrade.


Stojan was born in 1877 to Czech engineer Vladislav Titelbah (who emigrated from Prague to Principality of Serbia in 1875), and Katica (née Vasić) of Belgrade. He finished primary and secondary school in Belgrade. Stojan went on to study architecture at the Faculty of Technology at the University of Belgrade. He graduated in 1901 from the Department of Architecture. In the same year, together with architect Vladimir Popović (1876-1947), he was awarded the first price from the will of the merchant Dimitrije Stamatović for the project of a spa building for entertaining visitors and a plan for arranging the park, as well as a discussion about these types of buildings. [1] He probably worked privately at the beginning, and then he was employed as an architect in the Ministry of Construction from 30 January 1905 until the end of his life. [1] He designed several residential-commercial and residential buildings, with a lot of taste and imagination, applying elements of historical styles and secession. [1] Before [World War I], he traveled to France. Together with Nikolaj Krasnov and Aleksandar Bugarski, he was one of the few architects who at the turn of the century significantly influenced the architecture of Belgrade. [2]

He took part in the Great War, crossed Albanian mountains and arrived at Corfu. In Corfu, on 20 March 1916, [1] committed suicide, which was a consequence of his depression nature. He was buried in the ossuary on the island Vido.


His most significant works include, for example, the Novi dvor, which was commissioned by the court, originally intended for the royal family Karađorđević[3], now the seat of the President of Serbia. He also personally supervised the construction, from its beginning in 1911 until the cessation of construction in 1914. [4] As an architect in the service of the court from George, Crown Prince of Serbia received a wristwatch engraved with: "Stojan Djordje". Due to the war, construction was stopped, so the building did not get its final shape until 1921.

He also designed several smaller houses in the Serbian capital, including the Mihailo Popović's House which is located in the local part of Vračar.

Among the business facilities he designed include:

  • house of Aron Levi at Kralja Petra 39 (1907)
  • house of Jacques Bouly at Kralja Petra 58.

  • house of Svetislav Okanović at Makedonska 27;
  • house of Jovan Barlovac at France 15;
  • house of Rista Odavić at Alekse Nenadovića 35;
