smartvoll completes the renovation of a small house in vienna‘s museumquartier with a facade of rotating ‘fins’. the 35 sq-meter, one-room-apartment is enclosed by the layered facade which keeps away snoopy looks and orientates the space towards the outside while defining the outline of the small terrace on the house’s top.

dating at least 100 years, kutscherhaus, which used to belong to a coachman, has been transformed into an open space where eating, sleeping and living combine in one central area. the architects have placed the bathroom, kitchen and storage in a double function wall and kept their presence to a minimum. a rooftop terrace offers views to the unmatched museums – old and new ones – and thanks to the rotating facade, both the terrace and house can transform from an open space to an introverted hideaway.
