The “Cottage Hof” at the rim of the Cottage Quarter was built between 1902 and 1903 by Hans Dworak and is a brilliant reflection of early Vienna secessionist influence. Inspired by Vienna’s chief art nouveau representative Otto Wagner, Dworak became a master of integrating this new decorative art of his time. All of Dworak’s buildings cover the full range of secessionist art: women’s masks line the facade and are protruding amply into space, rich glass and wrought iron decorations around bay windows and on roof floors. Dworak’s corner buildings are of monumental character and their extremely rounded corner elements render them a high level of plasticity, which I also tried to show in the photos above.
