OWA Says: HEllo, FUTURE!

Almost 120 years ago, Otto Wagner designed a fascinating ensemble. His benchmark? Human dignity.

After over a century of clinical use, the City of Vienna is now bringing the Otto Wagner Areal into a bright new future.

In this unique heritage-listed ensemble with its precious green space, our mission is to create a place for everyone high above the city while preserving its commemorative function in accordance with the mediation concluded in 2013.

Sustainable and climate-friendly. A city of the future, green, light and lofty, newly established in the robust yet beautiful walls from the last century.

A home for culture, education, science, work, commemoration, experience, healing, and so much more.

THE Building project

In charge of the renovation and adaptation of the heritage-listed buildings and the renewal of the technical infrastructure, including the outdoor spaces, is Otto Wagner Areal Revitalisierung GmbH, a company of the Wien Holding subsidiary WSE Wiener Standortentwicklung GmbH.

The technical infrastructure will undergo a complete renewal. Modern building services and innovative energy solutions will make the structure fit for the future. Naturally, the heritage-listed architecture and magnificent stock of trees will remain unchanged.

Good to know: The entire Otto Wagner Areal, including the open spaces, will remain the property of the City of Vienna. The path to the church and the Steinhof recreation area will remain open to all.
