Tegetthoffstraße 7, Vienna

Tegetthoffstraße 7 | 1020 Vienna

The trophy building at Tegetthoffstrasse 7 occupies a prime location in the inner city. Built in 1912, the building counts among the first reinforced concrete constructions anywhere in Austria – and the innovative strength of the internationally renowned architect Ludwig Baumann remains visible to this day. Tenants enjoy occupying a charismatic period building with plenty of atmosphere, on the one hand, while benefiting from all the options of a modern, flexible office scheme, on the other hand.

HIGH LIVEABILITY AND A VERY BRIGHT OUTLOOK

As far as quality of living goes, Vienna is not easily outdone. For the tenth consecutive time, no less, the renowned Mercer Ranking named the Austrian capital the most liveable city in the world. And that is not all: The city is governed in smart, sustainable and innovative ways. In international rankings, Vienna has repeatedly topped the list as greenest city, smartest city, or the best place to go for start-ups.

What is more: Vienna has remained affordable for everyone. The educational spectrum and availability of young talent is top notch. The public transportation network is excellent, and the convenience of short distances for pedestrians is ensured by innovative transport concepts and a dense network of local amenities.

Handicap accessibility, shading, greening, and weatherproofing are encouraged and keep being further developed in the urban realm. Vienna is green. Its economy is booming. Its art, culture and history are no doubt unique.

Not least, Viennese cuisine is known for pampering any palate.

The house at Tegetthoffstrasse 7 occupies the very best of prime locations in the cultural heart of the Austrian capital. A short walk will take you to the Opera, the Hofburg Palace, the Spanish Riding School, the Imperial Crypt and the Albertina Museum. The prime high-street pitches of Kärntner Strasse and Neuer Markt are also within easy walking distance.

And from the conference room in the dome of the building, you have a unique view across the inner city toward St. Stephen’s Cathedral and the nearby State Opera.

Working here will give you a palpable sense of the past, and more than that. It is indeed a place where history was made. But the future prospects look just as grand.

GRAND HISTORY AND A VISIONARY EDIFICE

This website could not possibly do justice to the long and suspenseful history of the property. But it is perfectly safe to say: Few other places in Vienna have defined the city as much as this site. It was successively occupied by a monastery (1303-1529), by the main building of a hospital (1530-1784), by a tenement (1790-1874) and by a shopping arcade (1874-1909).

Between 1911 and 1912, the so-called Riunione-Haus, named after the insurance company “Riunione Adriatica di Sicurta” that used it as headquarters, was built here according to plans of Ludwig Baumann, at the time one of Vienna’s most celebrated architects.

The house was ahead of its time in many ways. Stylistically, it marks the transition from the Belle Époque to Modernism.

At the same time, it was one of the first buildings in Austria to be executed as reinforced concrete construction.

Its simultaneously sturdy and flexible building structure continues to offer all the advantages of a new-build construction even 110 years on, and this in the attractive historic exterior of early Modernism.

Between 2001 and 2005, the building was extensively but carefully upgraded to the technical state of the art in compliance with the listed building consent. Two panoramic lift systems were cleverly integrated into the historic stairwells, and the attic storey was developed. In the years since, the building has been subjected to periodic refurbishments and technical upgrades. Most recently in 2020.
