Wohnsiedlung Schmelz

The Schmelz council estate is more reminiscent of the Viennese settlement movement, which emerged from housing and food shortages after WWI, rather than the later community buildings of Red Vienna. As a self-preservation measure, land had been taken into possession towards the end of the war and thereafter in order to cultivate food and create housing opportunities. The Schmelz housing estate is a surving testament to this period.
