Wangenheim Palais, Hanover

The Wangenheim Palace was built in Neoclassical style between 1829 and 1832 according to the plans of the Hanover architect Georg Ludwig Friedrich Laves. The architect and architectural historian Georg Moller (1784-1852) presumably played an advisory role. Laves was commissioned by Count Georg von Wangenheim, who was a member of the Royal Building Commission, to erect it as a private dwelling-house.

In 1844 Laves added a winter garden to the palace.
