The Hundertwasserhaus is one of the most famous houses in the world. The building was built between 1983 and 1985. The striking building was a new beginning in architecture when it was completed. The house is without straight lines. The facades are varied and colourful. Plants grow on the roof, some of which are now large trees. All in all, in our opinion one of the most unusual houses in the world. We particularly like the connection between nature and architecture.
