    Default In Austria, an Artist's Home in a Police Station


    Josef Polleross for The New York Times
    Nives Widauer’s apartment is the only residence in a 19th-century mansion seized from its owners during World War II; the rest of the building is a police station.

    The space is okay but the decorating is horrendous. I'd torch most everything.

    That's the only part I dislike as well. I think it's a great space.

    This is profoundly disturbing.

    I could not live there no matter what the decor.

    A*O - what's weird about it in your opinion? Never been there, but it looks so beautiful from the outside.

    then you couldn't live in a lot of places in europe - especially in cities like vienna or berlin which have seen their fair share of wars, invasions, etc. some places might have a tragic history and you wouldn't know about it.

    i lived there for a while and my parents were there for over 7 years. i love vienna but i have to agree austrians definitely have their quirks. i would live in vienna again in a heartbeat though.
