Palais Rothschild, annexe, 28, Heugasse, Vienna, Austria

The property at 28 Heugasse (today Prinz-Eugen-Strasse 26), was built for Albert von Rothschild by the architects Ferdinand Fellner and Hermann Helmer in 1894. Its position next door to Albert's main residence suggests that it was intended as an annexe to his house at 24-26 Heugasse.

Many of its architectural features recalled the Austrian Baroque, the vast Iconic pilasters, for example, and the Atlases framing a monumental door, and it owed much to Viennese palaces of the 17th century. The house is now the Brazilian embassy.
