A roof covered with earth and grass, and large trees growing from inside the rooms, with limbs extending from windows. The painter took no payment for the design of the house, declaring that it was worth it, to prevent something ugly from going up in its place.
It is very colored and there are 52 apartments, four offices, 16 private terraces and three communal terraces, and a total of 250 trees and bushes. Because of the colors it is today Vienna's most visited buildings. Down there is cafe.
