Obere Augartenstrasse 44

One special feature of the four-staircase complex at Obere Augartenstrasse 44 is its structured façade, where the structure is provided by three materials: brick, coarse-grained grey plaster and fine, yellowish (owing to the addition of quartz sand) plaster.

The aim was to keep in line with the original intention of architect Konstantin Peller, while upgrading the building in accordance with modern technical standards. To this end, BWM Architekten tried not to introduce any new elements, but rather to adapt the existing ones. The brick base was preserved, and the façade restored with matching plaster. Flower box holders were added to the balconies to improve fall protection.
