The architecture office heri&salli designed on the square in front of the Museumsquartier, Vienna a constructed sequence of standstill... a moment of physical tranquility.
The open space of the Museumsquartier is already a place to hang around and relax, now the architects created a prototype divided in sequences in this area- the Flederhaus...equipped with hammocks.
The obviously abstract shape of the house diverges from the typical object house because of its different use and the spatial opening; it becomes the enlarged public open space of a vertical structured sphere.
It’s a constructed public “space with additional value”, an oasis for the soul.
The construction is only a copy or rather a logo of a story of a stay. Obviously staying in a public area is only temporary...a kind of sequence, we give this sequence a permanent setting.
“Flederhaus” (a German word play, “Fledermaus” is a bat). The name is the result of the combination “Fledermaus” and “Haus”, but now who hangs down in the house is the human being, not the bat.
