With this project moment-home sets a new standard in how to deal with historic structures, by preserving old, adding new elements and creating a building with a unique haracter.
Here people love to be - deep in the heart of Vienna, to live, to work and to enjoy life.
Visitors are fascinated by the so called elevator gallery and the stable gallery located in the former horse stable.
The ambience is calming, the hallway with it’s ceiling paintings that tell a lot about the history of the house, the inner court yard with its crystalline elevator towers and the fountain that also fulfills an acoustic purpose.
Numerous apartments impress not only by rich parquet flooring and other delicate details, but also by so called raummöbel, that house the technical backbone, bathrooms and storage so that these apartments are refined and beamed up to our modern needs.
At Palais Brambilla cultural heritage becomes visible and reaches out to future generations.
