The appartment is part of the Kunst Haus Wien, Vienna´s museum which focuses on photography and holds the collection of the austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Hundertwasser designed the building 1991 in his artistic style: “It is a house that does not follow the usual standards, an adventure of modern times, a journey into a country of creative architecture,” Hundertwasser said.
