Pixel in the textile passage
Graben 3, located in the centre of Linz’s inner city, houses our "Pixel in the textile passage" and the gallery that keeps the Pixel supplied with artworks from its collection. Walk down the passageway past the gallery on your left and you reach a small, rather idyllic inner courtyard. You are now in front of the "Pixel in the textile passage", which is remarkable in architectural terms above all for the playful use it makes of the vertical dimension.
Living, sleeping and, last but not least, playing are assigned four different levels. The room is dominated by a floating island offering storage space, seating furniture and a bed for the night. The island also gives you access to adjoining Nimmerland (Neverland), a small room so low it’s almost impossible for fully grown people to stand upright in it. This room was specially conceived for children and/or the eternal child in us. Furnished with pillows and a games console, it serves as a den to withdraw to from the hubbub in the city.
“Pixel in the textile passage” is located in the heart of the oldest part of Linz. Newly renovated Pfarrplatz is only a stone’s throw away and has a number of attractive restaurants with outdoor seating; there is always something on by way of cultural events. Hauptplatz, the old city, and Donaupark with the Lentos Kunstmuseum and Brucknerhaus are only a few minutes away.
