The original building dating back to the Biedermeier era was rebuilt by the architects Schluder and Kastner in the years 1991 to 1993.
The ground floor is comprised of offices and work areas. The library is located on the street floor and communicates with the garden via the “cartoon room”.
On the first floor, the original living rooms were turned into a large lecture hall; the terrace room, an open transparent space facing the park, connects the lecture hall with the Kreisky salon, the centrepiece of the house featuring elegant wood panelling.
The furniture and the paintings in the “living room” were Bruno Kreisky’s own property and lend it a historical touch.
