Notes NOTES: Winarskyhof was the last in the series of projects put forward by the Osterreichische Verband fur Siedlungs-und Kleingartenwesen (OVSK) in 1923-1924, to redirect the socialist building programme of 'Red Vienna' towards more dispersed and lower density developments, compared to the Gemeindebauten blocks. Several different architects worked on the three blocks containing some 760 apartments, including Peter Behrens and Josef Hoffmann. This facade is by Oskar Strnad.
