In a single enchated courtyard right behind the Museumsquartier (English: museum´s accommodation) we have resuscitated a small, romantic house of a coachman. Back then the coachman had to divide his small room of living with the animals´ foodyard and his own space was also split up corresponding to the different functions of eating, sleeping, washing and living, so it was divided into smaller rooms again. One hundred years later we combine eating, sleeping and living in one central island of living. The bathroom, the kitchen and the stowage are placed in a double function of the wall and are kept to a minimum. The result is: A small surface can get a huge room! Outside we put a small terrace on the top of the house and keep this in an elegant dress of fins. The resulting room outside doubles the 35m2 one-room-apartment and let the flat be an introverted refugium. The fins keep away snoopy looks from outside and tries to orientate the outside-room to inside, they nuzzle and hug the corkscrew stairs that are the beginning of the roof´s terrace. There you can enjoy an unforgettable view to the different museums – old ones and new ones.
