Nice building to look at and to use as a background for selfies. The facade is too controversial due to its location. Research the area and you will know what I mean or better yet visit the area and feel the contrast!

Amidst the historical and important buildings at Stephensplatz is the noticeably more recent, modern and architecturally interesting Haas Haus building, which was designed by Austrian architect Hans Hollein in postmodernist style in 1990.
With its peculiar shape and form, the building most notably comes across...More
Really not a fan of modern architecture in the old city centres. Especially in Vienna's old city. Too modern and too much in contrast with surroundings, especially St Stephan's Cathedral.
Building itself is rather nice, but location is not. Shame, just some hundred meters in...More
Designed by Hans Hollein, the Haas Haus is classic postmodernist architecture! The building is marmite- people either love it or hate it, owing to its contrast with the adjacent St Stephens cathedral. For me, it's well detailed and represents a quality piece of modern architecture...More
Found this and enjoyed the designs.
Would have loved to gone inside.. It was after hours . And would enjoy knowing more about the architect.
It's odd buildings hundreds of years old and then this modern building!
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The
Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
The bells are very loud in the square. Beautiful sound. We were staying at Hotel Konig von Ungard two blocks away but never heard them at night. So not sure if they don't sound or we couldn't hear them.
