Relaxed living in a former shellac factory!

So much space! Such an atmosphere! So much potential!

Bring together a creative film director and a talented architect with ingenious ideas and what do you get? An excellent result! And that’s exactly what happened: a former factory in a backyard in Vienna’s 15th district was transformed into a quirky home to live and work in. The backyard is cool and quiet yet just around the corner is busy Meiselmarkt with its hustle and bustle! The U3 subway station Johnstraße is also there.

The apartment is laid out over 2 levels and has a floor area of 330 m²/ 3552 sq ft plus plenty of outside space distributed in the inner courtyard and multiple terraces to while away the time. It’s particularly nice to sit under the white parasol and contemplate the green and leafy wall.

If you’re looking for a property that is anything but conventional, then this is it! The property was renovated from the top down and premium materials were used, but you won’t find “Sleek Chic” here: each and every piece was lovingly sourced or manufactured for the property and can remain in the house for the new owner!

There are two extra terraces on the 1st floor and a flat roof (no planning permission) that looks onto a tall, old walnut tree.

There is a garage that is rarely used since there is plenty of on-street parking available.

If you like collecting things, you’ll be pleased to learn that there is extra storage in the basement.

The ceiling height on the ground floor (US 1st floor) is approx. 3.20 m/ 10 ft and 2.80 m/ 9 ft on the upper level.


The 15th district around Meiselmarkt has been a particularly trendy area for years.

The particularly successful mix of classic Viennese taverns with an original Viennese clientele, combined with multicultural newcomers, a process that has been taking place around the market for decades. The area around Meiselmarkt has seen a surge in development over the last few years and the district continues to grow. The excellent infrastructure with the U3 subway station Johnstraße is an important feature that determines the popularity of the location.

The Meiselmarkt is located in what used to be a water tank belonging to the Viennese waterworks and is a large shopping mall where you can source and purchase all daily necessities.

The property is close to Auer-Welsbach-Park, the Technical Museum, Schönbrunn Palace and the zoo.

Public transportation connections:

In addition to the U3 subway stop Johnstraße, you also have tram line 49 and bus lines 10A and 12A.
