Restoration of Klimt's Garden
Prof. Herbert Eipeldauer, Senior Partner, Garden and Landscape Co. Ing. Eipeldauer, member of the Klimt Society for many years, supports the Klimt
Society goal to restore some of Klimt's colourful garden of blooms and bushes. "Klimt Rose", the original rose-bush from Klimt's time will be enlarged
to the shape of rose-bed and various plants and flowering bushes will be planted on the south-side of the building.
Appeal/Petition to the City of Vienna
The Society continues to be vigilant in maintaining its original goal of preserving Klimt’s Studio and Garden for everybody to enjoy,
actively building awareness and successfully lobbying against recently proposed change of use for the beautiful garden to building plots
for land development immediately next to Klimt Villa!
The Appeal to the City of Vienna (2013) and the Petition to protect the garden spaced around Klimt Villa (Dec. 2013 – March 2014) were successful !
The City passed a majority vote to retain the garden space.
