This impressive six-storey property close to the Ringstraße and Burgtheater was designed in Historicist style by Heinrich Ferstel and Karl Köchlin and completed in 1884. ÖRAG recently added top-floor apartments with roof terraces and atelier-style glazing.
Access to the courtyard-facing apartments and three light-filled maisonettes with state-of-the-art appointments is via an ornate ground-floor entrance hall with a central lift and staircase. Spacious terraces offer an exceptional view over Vienna. ÖRAG provided the architectural services for the roof-level extension and is also responsible for the management of the entire property, comprising eleven apartments, two offices, a restaurant and six retail units.
Did you know that the property changed hands a number of times between 1560 and 1660? Originally housing the Baumgartenberger Hof, an outpost of Baumgartenberg Abbey near Grein in Upper Austria, it subsequently belonged to Count Christoph von Breuner, Count Michael Hanns von Althan and the imperial chamberlain Count Leopold Carl von Hoyos.
