Designed mostly by Ludwig Wittgenstein Sep 25, 2017
The house was originaly planed to be built in the Renngasse and desinged by Paul Engelmann, a pupil of Adolf Loos, for Margaret Stonborough-Wittgenstein in 1925, this was changed to a plot in Kundmanngasse (servant entrance) / Parkgasse (main entrance) and Ludwig Wittgenstein, her brother and at the time unemployed got very involved designing the building very puristic and functional, with metal kurtines instead off curtains and a floor consisting of terrazzo, reinforced with metal, to realize a floor heating system, also the first glass elevator in Austria. It was finished in 1928, Margaret Stonborough-Wittgenstein lived there until the early 1958, in the seventies it became a protected monument and the Bulgarian embassy and cultural institute.

You need a pre-registration to visit the house, this might not be necessary if there is a exhibition (usualy Bulgaria related).

Get there by U 3 station Rochusgasse.
