In the 15th district of Vienna lies a classic, 1400 square foot Viennese apartment, named Apartment H+M, that was built at the turn of the century. The new homeowner desired to renovate the home while still preserving its original history, without the typical mistakes of previous renovation attempts.

A lavish bathroom, complete with a sauna, was a former entryway that had a bathroom and a cloakroom. The mini spa was smoothed and sealed with white tile-adhesives, creating a soothing, minimal space.
