The outcome of more than 20 years of creative work is shown on these pages. The output reaches from solutions for the advertsing industry to furniture design and finals in the architecture of houses. The portfolio is set up like a blog. This format enables to provide a look behind the scenes. Very often it’s the story behind which makes the whole thing appealing.
Thanks for watching. Christoph Wanzel
WANZ’inn is a new type of Apartment in Vienna. The apartments are well designed but the prices fit people traveling on a budget.
Located in the very heart of Vienna it’s just a few minutes walk to main sights, culture, entertainment, cafes and restauants and of course shopping. The flats are equipped with all appliances and all furniture, a kitchen and a washing machine. Free use of internet via WLAN and 35 TV-channels are obvious. The building itself dates back to the”Biedermeier period”more than 150 years ago.
We are looking forward to your inquiries which we will answer within 24 hours.
It required action. The rain came into the roof. The energy consumption was too high.
The idea was to keep the appeal of this 1929 Siedlungshaus. With limited interventions get out as much as possible but damage the look and feel of the house as little as possible. E.g. one of the main measures was to keep the original Kastenfenster in the house. No real trade-off to the energy saving ambitions.
One of the main targets was to create additional space for additional family members. This was achieved by building a dormer/gaupe in the roof. Definitely a serious intervention in the old structure, but gaining another 40m2 existing surface area which became inhabitable.
there was a place to rest and calm down and it was well located next to the “stomach” of Vienna. Inhabitants enjoyed the odors and the ever changing tastes of this area. The place came with all amenities anyhow, so you could shop on the market and cook at home as well. And the price for the whole thing was less than bread and butter for a week. Yes it’s long long time ago that you could enjoy such lodgings. And today – it’s still the same.
