Stadiongasse 6-8, Vienna

During the 1870s, Wagner designed and built speculatively the first of a career-long series of 13 large residential blocks, all modelled to a greater or lesser extent on his family home and each of which Wagner lived in briefly until the next had been built. Those at Schottenring 23 (1877) and Stadiongasse 6-8 (1882) are typical examples, with rusticated lower floors and trabeated openings; the former has an ornate iron balcony to the three central rooms of the second floor.

The building at Stadiongasse 6-8 presently houses the Embassy of Columbia.
