Apartments blocks

This part describes large multi-family houses and multi-storey residential buildings with more than eleven living units, which are mostly located in larger towns. In the urban areas residential buildings are typical, with masonry and stucco decorations on the front side and with simple masonries and due to later extensions partly very angled on the back side. From 1919 to the mid 1930s especially in the so called “Rotes Wien” (labour policy oriented Vienna) standardized dwellings with standard floor plans (38 or 48 m²) were built. In the big apartment blocks until 1944, 1- and 2- bedroom apartments with breakfast kitchen, kitchenette and bathroom/WC predominate.
