The Villa Mautner-Jäger, located in the third district of Vienna, will once again become a super-luxury villa. The property's design is being created by the award-winning architects; Erik Testor (Testor and Partner) and Nilufar Royce (Royce Architects).
Constructed back in the early 20th century, the Villa Mautner-Jäger was originally the family home of Hertha Jäger of the Mautner-Markhof industrial family. Later on, it became an inheritance and last year (2022), the property was sold for EUR 8.55M to RSREO GmbH, which is a Vienna-based company who specializes in luxury real estate.
Since 1991 the villa has been a listed building, however, it fell into disrepair despite the activity in the land register. As a result, now there will be a huge change, as RSREO GmbH has presented new plans which will transform the villa into an exclusive property. The architects Erik Testor (Testor and Partner) and Nilufar Royce (Royce Architects) are responsible for the design of the Villa Mautner-Jäger.
The general layout of the building, located in the third district, will be largely retained to preserve its originality. At the same time, it was decided to install extra bathrooms on the upper floor and living spaces in the attic. In addition, there will be a steel and glass elevator for the utmost convenience of residents. A historic bowling alley will become operational again and the private park and the garden will be redesigned.
Until the start of the renovation, the villa will be used by the art organization; Node Contemporary for one year. There will be tours for school classes, readings, performances and concerts, in addition to modern art exhibitions.
