In the very center of Vienna, the so-called Nako´sche Haus was located at Fleischmarkt no. 18. It used to be a law school before the Greek merchant Christof Nako purchased the then two buildings, which he converted into one apartment building. The core of the original buildings is still in place today. The inscription above the third floor goes back to the 18th century "Ephemeral though this house may be, Joseph's posthumous fame never dies, he gave us tolerance, immortality is thus his prize!" These lines commemorate the Edict of Toleration (Toleranzpatent) which was issued by Joseph II in 1781, granting freedom of religion to non-Catholic Christians.
This gem of Josephinist architecture has been listed as a historical building since 1974. But this was not the only reason for us to renovate and convert the attic in a particularly careful manner. For us the maintenance of historical buildings carries a particularly high priority. Such edifices are witnesses that inform us about an era long gone by, thus constituting essential components in urban development. The "House of Tolerance" features a large inner courtyard with open corridors around it, typical for Viennese buildings. These corridors provide additional walkways along the inner side of the building leading to the entrances into the individual apartments.
The location, directly in the center of the city, has much to offer. It is where main public transport lines come together and where downtown shopping facilities are of invaluable importance. The Viennese themselves like to rediscover their historical city and its sights over and over again.
