The Viennese homestead movement

C A N C E L L E D !

This self-help movement, which emerged from the misery after the fall of the monarchy, demands housing developments as an alternative to the residential palacelike social housing projects of the “red Vienna”.

Housing estate “Trautes Heim” (home sweet home), 1922 – 1924
Public utility housing association of the repatriated soldiers, Lindenbauergasse:
– Franz Kaym
– Alfons Hetmanek

Housing development “Per-Albin-Hansson-Siedlung West”
– Friedrich Pangratz, Franz Schuster 1947 – 51
– Stephan Simony, Eugen Wörle 1954 / 55

In recognition of the great help by the Swedish government after World War II, this housing estate was named after the Swedish president Per Albin Hansson. The concept with its over 1000 appartments, residential streets, gardenpaths and alleys it can be compared with the “garden-city-concept” of the early 1920ies.
