A door from the Congress Hall opens into the Marble Corner Salon that was also severely damaged during the war. The architect Oswald Haerdtl, who was responsible for the entire restoration of the Federal Chancellery, was allowed to redesign this room after 1945. He combined red marble with gilded metal, the first of which gave the salon its new name.
