The House of Engineers was built during 1870 – 72 as a club house for the The Austrian Society of Engineers and Architects (ÖIAV). Following the example of English clubhouses, it was built in the style of Palladian classicism according to the design of the architect Otto Thienemann. The Palais Eschenbach was inaugurated by Emperor Franz Josef I on 26th November 1972.
The building’s center piece is the large banquet hall with its furnishings by Franz Schönthaler.
Between 2010 and 2017, the entire building was refurbished, starting with the renovation of the historic substance of the banquet hall. Today the House of Technology offers offices and rooms for lectures, conferences and events with state of the art technology in a unique 19th century ambience.
