Conversion and extension and refurbishment of the foyer and exhibition hall of the Vienna Museum built in 1959. The foyer planned by the architect Oswald Haerdtl has been cleared from a mix of different forms of utilization. The removal of one pilaster has created a link to the staircase. The central element of the clearly organized space is a room-filling piece of furniture including a cash register area and a museum shop. The study rooms, lecture hall and depots on the first floor have been converted into easily adaptable rooms for special temporary exhibitions.
