Most of those who visit Vienna visit the world famous St.Stephen's Cathedral. The Haas Haus, right opposite the dome, is also well known - you simply cannot miss it! The Austrian architect, Hans Hollein, designed the new structure of the building, formerly used as a furniture and interior decorating store by Philipp Haas & Sons, who gave the building their name. During its planning and construction, the project came under much discussion and scrutiny, which is usual when new architecture is planned in an old part of city center. A mixture of office and retail, with a cafe and an expensive (but great) penthouse restaurant has calmed the Viennese folks' ire caused by the cylindrical house with its mirror facade.
