Mesmer And Braid

Mesmer and Braid is an architecture company, founded in 1898 as The Mesmer Company, by Wolfgang Mesmer.

Their first building was Haus Imagini, Vienna in 1893.

Mesmer retired in 1965 and his son, Wolf Jr, took over. Vera Braid became Wolf's partner in 1982.

Some (future?) M&B projects from their main website:

  • Antehaus (2024) Conservatory pond courtyard. “A house is not a machine to live in. It is the shell of man, his extension, his release, his spiritual emanation.” (Eileen Gray)
  • Interspiegel (2022) Undulating mirrored washroom. “The straight line is godless and immoral.” (Friedensreich Hundertwasser)
  • Videhaus (2023) Stacked overlook deck. “Architecture arouses sentiments in man. The architect's task therefore, is to make those sentiments more precise.” (Adolf Loos)
  • Locaemia (2024) Suspended lagoon heater. “Architecture is how the person places herself in the space. Fashion is about how you place the object on the person.” (Zaha Hadid)
