Anton Brenner’s „Wohnmaschine“ (1925) provides an interesting insight into the modernist architecture of the Red Vienna period. The municipal housing block is equipped with small aparments, throughout with built-in furniture to reduce the overall size of the apartment. Brenner’s design has built-in cupboards and closets, as well as foldaway beds – to stow away during the day. The floor plan, which covers an avarage size of 38m2 for a family of four, includes a separate tiny kitchen, which is often referred to as the forerunner of the Frankfurt kitchen. Brenner’s Wohnmaschine embraces ideas of efficient use of space and household rationalization.
