Vision in concrete: The scullery was intended for a small room between the kitchen-living room and the garden, and should combine several functions: Heating water in the kettle, bathing in the tub, washing clothes, washing dishes and cleaning vegetables, etc. However, the prototype of the kitchen never went into production, unlike the Frankfurt kitchen, with which Schütte-Lihotzky later became famous. The design of the scullery, reconstructed in 2019, tells the story of the settlers’ movement, which was considered a tried and tested answer to hunger and housing shortages in Vienna after the First World War.
