Three exceptional examples of comprehensive renovation work carried out on historic buildings in Vienna show successful architectural interventions on a variety of scales. Following extensive renovation, the Ring Road palace and former Epstein Bank built by Theophil Hansen (1864) is now enjoying its new — parliamentary — user. The most recent renovation of Palais Pálffy presents a fresh modern face as the new central office of the OSCE (The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe), as does the conversion of the administrative building completed ca. 1900 into a new office building for KPMG Austria (part of an international network of auditors and accountants).
