Text description provided by the architects. The bathing hut was conceived as a micro villa with full amenities. Located on the waterfront of the Old Danube, but still in the centre of Vienna(Austria), it is a private chill-out oasis within an otherwise dense urban context.

Coming from the street, the property is accessed through a large sliding gate that leads to the top terrace of the very compact arrangement. An open-air staircase along the side facade takes the visitor 3 meters below.

On this level the main terrace open to the Old Danube, and the double-height, main living room can seamlessly connect to the outdoor space through a sliding facade. Inside, a suspended gallery offering wonderful views over the water is used as a sleeping deck.

Under the gallery there is place for the bathroom and the adjacent open kitchen. In the rear of the house under the overlying top terrace place was found for a storage. A wooden floating deck, illuminated at night, offers the possibility of a boat mooring.
