GUSTAV KLIMT HOUSE
A house for the Master Artist had to not just replicate a space of living but at a life, his contribution to art, his belief and best of all his SOUL.
Gustav Klimt's soul lies in the expression of his belief.
His art that expressed feminine nature, love, Fluidity, Erotica, geometry and with every attribute its association to human nature and the importance of understanding life.
Thus, it was found suitable to create an entire walk into a mood of Klimt's work and finally into the house that would display replicas of all of Klimt's work.
Klimt is undoubtedly the pride of his hometown and thus, the most fitting location for this beautiful Art experience zone has been chosen as BAUMBERG.
The existing KLIMT'S PARK named after Klimt at Baumberg has been chosen as the site and worked out on a masterplan housing and URBAN INSERT + ARTIST EXPERIENCE HOUSE as a fitting tribute to Klimt.
