from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kirchmayr House (2011)

The Kirchmayr House is a residential and commercial building on the main square in Linz . The building is a historical monument.

The sculptor Johann Baptist Spaz lived in the Gothic house before 1700 until after 1720 . In 1907, today's Kirchmayr House was built by master builder Gustav Steinberger as a commercial building for Funke & Loos , and in 1982 the top floor was demolished.

The late historical building has a slightly protruding base zone in the building line. From the first floor, a central bay built on corbels extends over the upper floors. The facade shows a rich neo-baroque stucco window and decorated corner blocks. The neo-baroque lattice balustrades on the first and second floors are remarkable. The horseshoe-shaped staircase has a late historical cast iron railing.
