Lift Installation Währingerstrasse
Vienna, 9th District
1986 - 1987
GMMK , Gert M. MAYR-KEBER ZT-GmbH. Lifteinbau Währingerstrasse, 1986-1987

The installation of this passenger lift in an apartment block at Währingerstrasse 5-7, a building which lies within the urban protection zone and is ascribed to the architects Helmer and Fellner, was carried out during the course of the comprehensive restoration of the building.

As an architectonically contrasting steel structure in a homogeneous interior which is richly decorated with stucco-work from the entrance foyer to the raised ground floor, the new lift stands as an independent object, almost like a piece of furniture, and allows the existing environment its own identity.
