Acerca de nuestra casa

As architects, it took us quite a while to find the perfect place to create our home. Lots of light, space, a terrace off the living room, and a quick walk/tram to the first district were a must. Finally, we added to the beautiful hardwood floors a Bulthaup kitchen, our personal mix of modern and antique furnishings, and our two friendly cats – Pluto and Mars.

Our rooftop apartment is within a 15-minute walking radius to the the Opera House, the Belvedere Palace, the open air market (Naschmarkt), and the new Main Train Station. Artsy restaurants, galleries, shops and a lovely historic park to take a stroll and people watch are all close-by. If you want to eat in – a sunset dinner on the terrace is hard to beat – an organic grocery store, a butcher with prepared foods, and a large gourmet supermarket are just down the street.

Our apartment is on the top floor of a century old building with a beautiful green courtyard. The whole building was entirely built/renovated in 2012 and is very environmentally friendly. The apartment is kept warm in the winter with radiant floor heating and cool in the summer with radiant cooling and all the rainwater for terraces is recycled. A lift brings you to the top level and a half flight of stairs takes you to our entrance. The apartment itself has, on the lower level, a master bedroom, two children's rooms (one with its own terrace), a bathroom with a large glazed walk-in shower and rain shower head, and an additional toilet. The main level has an open floor plan with living room, kitchen, dining table, fireplace, and my favourite window seat next to a built in bookshelf. Two large double-sized sliding glass doors open onto a terrace with a table that seats eight, a bbq, roses, herb garden, etc. A perfect place for a morning coffee or a glass of wine at sunset! Above the living room is a gallery with our home office. Above that is the top terrace with a garden, lounge sofas, and a spectacular 280 degree view over Vienna.

Where is it?


Restaurantes llenos de vida
A block away is the tiny and packed Duspara, which has amazing food at very reasonable prices and you won't find a tourist in the room. If you want to eat here I'll need to book a table at least two weeks in advance. One of the best places in Vienna to get schnitzel is called Rudi's Beisl and is across the street. It is also very popular and needs a reservation. We are foodies so the list goes on and on, but we will supply a list of our favourite places for you to explore.
Bares fantásticos
A bar depends on how you like it – stirred, shaken, mixed, from the vine, or from the tap? Don't worry, there are options to suit every taste.
Cafetería hogareña
Our neighbourhood is multiculti, but a couple of cute and hip places have opened up recently. One of them is called
Terapia de compras
There are lots of young fashion designers on Margaretenstrasse, Schleifmuhlgasse etc. If you are feeling particularly extravagant, a young cobbler down the street makes custom-made leather shoes that you will wear for the rest of your life. Both the first district, with its designer labels, and Mariahilferstrasse, with its major department stores, are in easy reach.
Un toque de cultura
For music – the Opera, Musikverein, and Konzerthaus; for art – the Klimt's at the Belvedere, the Albertina's amazing print collection, and Breugel at the Art History Museum, are all a 15-20 minute walk away.
Paseos por el parque
Again the imperial majesty of the Belvedere and the intimacy of the Botanical Gardens are my favourite spots. But, to really soak up Viennese life you only need to go a block away to the Paris-inspired Drasche Park and watch the old Viennese ladies walking their dogs while having a good schwatzen (chat).
Un poquito de ejercicio
Imperial hunting grounds, palaces, or boulevards?
