25hours Hotel in Vienna, Austria by BWM Architekten und Partner

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

Article source: BWM Architekten und Partner

A hotel is a hotel is a hotel just for tourists. Wrong! The new 25hours Hotel, located near Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier, is by no means just a pretentious structure offering accommodation for a well-heeled foreign clientele. Since opening its doors in early 2013, this centrally located hotel has become a popular spot for all – especially for the locals, who appreciate the pizzeria, the Viennese “Schanigarten” with a special burger grill, and a cool rooftop café with a terrace.

The Barn in Tyrol, Austria by Mark Neuner & Mostlikely Architecture

Friday, September 27th, 2013

Article source: Mark Neuner & Mostlikely Architecture

Staged Authenticity.
To build a one family house in the region of Kitzbühel architect Mark Neuner and the team of mostlikely took a better part of the design process as a research quest on how to build in a contemporary way without neglecting the historic traditions. Questions with great significance in an area where tradition not only weighs heavily on old houses but hardly any new houses that are more daring are to be found at all. This coherent architectural landscape allows for a romantic identity as well as regional authenticity and serves as the layer stone of the tourism industry in this area. To respect and preserve the substance of the idyllic mountain village Going am Wilden Kaiser (the name of the mountain which literally translates to “Wild Emperor”) mostlikely chose to stage the well-known and proven in a new way.

Article source: Smertnik Kraut Architekten

The estate and the farmhouse with adjacent forest have been in the family’s property for a long time before the decision was made to construct a summer residence. The actual residential building of the farm was too small by the size for the family. The barn in the close proximity was therefor large enough.
