The House as Path and Place

Josef Frank

Together with Oskar Wlach Josef Frank has created with „Villa Beer“ one of his most important works with an exceptional culture-historical and artistic meaning in Vienna. Friedrich Achleithner, the chronographer of the Austrian architectural modernism, called it “the most important example of Viennese home decor of the interwar period.“

The house is under monumental protection since 1987. Some years ago the facade and the roof, two very affected building elements, were renovated in consultation with the Austrian Bundesdenkmalamt. Overall the house is in good condition and preserved in its original state.

„Villa Beer“ will be transformed into a house museum open to the public. As a first step the necessary renovations are planned with due regard to monumental protection. At the same time a concept is developed in collaboration with experts in the field of architectural history, Josef Frank, Oskar Wlach and “Villa Beer” in particular as well as with various institutions and public authorities. The future of this wonderful house will be imagined and developed jointly.
