The Hundertwasserhaus is a Viennese building of unusual design. It is located at 34-38 Kegelgasse in Vienna's 3rd district (Landstraße). It was built between 1983 and 1985 by the municipality of Vienna.
This colorful and unusually designed building was designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser, and plans drawn by architect and university professor Joseph Krawina. Its floors are irregular and the building is embellished with lush vegetation (253 trees and shrubs). It does not correspond to the usual norms of scholastic architecture, but constitutes a journey in the field of creative architecture. Hundertwasser was inspired by the works of Antoni Gaudi, Factor Cheval ("Ideal Palace"), Simon Rodia (Watts Towers), but also allotments and storybooks. This house houses 52 homes and 4 café-restaurants, as well as 16 private terraces and 3 common terraces on its roof. © Photo of Emmanuel Buchot
