Hundertwasser House Vienna

The Hundertwasser House Vienna (German: Hundertwasserhaus Wien) is an apartment house in Vienna, Austria, created by the Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. The Hundertwasser House is located in the 3. district, Kegelgasse 34-38 / Lwengasse 41-43, at 48°12′26″, just some streets away from the Lithuanian embassy.

The Hundertwasser House was built between 1983 and 1986 by architects Univ.-Prof. Joseph Krawina and Peter Pelikan. It features undulating floors ("an uneven floor is a melody to the feet"), a roof covered with earth and grass, and large trees growing from inside the rooms, with limbs extending from windows. Hundertwasser took no payment for the design of the house, declaring that it was worth it, to prevent something ugly from going up in its place.

The Hundertwasser House has 52 apartments, four offices, 16 private terraces and three communal terraces, and a total of 250 trees and bushes. The Hundertwasser House is one of Austria's most visited buildings, and has become part of Austria's cultural heritage.
