“The Town Musicians of Bremen as Terrace House”

Analogous to the Grimm Brothers’ fairy tale The Town Musicians of Bremen (whose main characters are a donkey, a dog, a cat, and a rooster), this reinterpretation of terrace houses involves stacking different apartment types atop one another.

Hotel Topazz in Vienna, Austria by BWM Architekten und Partner

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Article source: BWM Architekten und Partner

The Vienna-based architecture firm BWM Architekten und Partner and Michael Manzenreiter have created a hotel on a 153m2 corner plot near Hoher Markt Square – a hotel that draws attention to itself while at the same time enhancing the historical fabric of the city centre with its originality. Hotel Topazz opened its doors in April 2012.

The building draws its height reference from the long row of buildings on Hoher Markt Square and leads its upper border via a distinctive rounded corner into Kramergasse. In this way, it shows its reverence for the previous building, whose facade was also characterised by a bold, rounded projection.

Inside Fashion Store in Vienna, Austria by Söhne & Partner Architects

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

Article source: Söhne & Partner Architects

A 100m² shop presents fashion in a discreet but appealing way.

It was the designer’s intention to create a restrained and straight room in order to make it an eye-catcher for the Neubaugasse in Vienna. Thus, people who are passing by should be guided into the store. The colour turquoise directs the customers through the shop while the interior is mainly white and sober in order to present the fashion at the best. Big mirror surfaces make the room seemingly bigger.

This allowed the total project-schedule to be as quick as 14 months (from tender to finalization).

The urban railway system between Vienna´s centre and the airport got redesigned. Several stations got new configurations and cladding designs. Because Vienna´s International Airport in Schwechat gets converted and expanded at the moment, the underground station of the local train line S7, which connects Vienna´s centre with the airport had to be modified in various terms.

Spittelau Viaducts Housing Project in Vienna, Austria by Zaha Hadid Architect

Sunday, June 3rd, 2012

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architect

A landmark project completed as part of a waterside revitalization project – our three-part structure, comprising apartments, offices and artists’ studios, woven through, around and over the arched bays of a disused railway viaduct. Our buildings interact playfully with the viaduct, creating new exterior spaces and vistas.

As part of an initiative undertaken by the City of Vienna to revitalize the Wiener Guertel, a neglected urban hinterland which traditionally marked the ‘dividing line’ between indigenous Viennese and immigrant communities, we designed and constructed the Spittelau Viaducts Housing Project.

Mochi Restaurant in Vienna, Austria by Kohlmayr Lutter Knapp

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Article source: Kohlmayr Lutter Knapp

The story of the two Mochi founders roots in learning how to cook with Pierre Gagnaire and Jean- François Piège in Paris while the other directed BMW World’s restaurant in Munich. Their vision was to create a space where people and ingredients could meet on the highest level of atmosphere and quality. Beyond regular parameters of star cuisine and slick architecture a space should be created challenging a next level of authentic encounter.

URBANAUTS | STREET LOFTS in VIENNA, AUSTRIA by Christian Knapp & Jonathan Lutter

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

Article source: Christian Knapp & Jonathan Lutter

Authentic experience has become an important value to urban travellers. Individual impression instead of mainstream sightseeing is what motivates modern tourists today to explore major cities. A new hotel concept now offers the infrastructure for trips off the beaten track.

The idea is simple and convincing. Due to its proximity to the city life Vienna’s ground floor zone symbolises an area of unique urban character. At the same time massive vacancies of city shops urge for their revitalisation. URBANAUTS bridges both aspects using vacant boutiques as authentic habitat for travellers. Former shops become central hotel rooms – URBANAUTS Street Lofts.

The concept is unique. Hotel is no longer regarded in terms of a self-sufficient building. Based on the theory of the horizontal hotel it stretches out over the city. Fragmentation is the keyword. Rooms are spread within a district, adding up to segments in different parts of the city.

A quiet oasis right in the middle of the city centre. Entered directly from the street the lofts offer a most private and discreet space right next to where city life happens. Spacious and comfortably furnished they create a new category of Boutique Lofts among the family of Boutique Hotels. Their strong connection to the city is always sensible through the art work of local artists who are invited to account for the past of the loft.

Di Piu in Vienna, Austria by Kohlmayr Lutter Knapp

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Article source: Kohlmayr Lutter Knapp

The design principle at the restaurant located in a downtown shopping mall in Vienna was to avoid establishing a spectacle located in a place of excessive percipience. First and foremost the people, the excellent food, the taste should be percepted not the design. The new skin, the visible layer, consists of modificated, recombined and low priced materials which are quite unusual for the use in an gastronomic environment. They receive new haptic and optic characteristics through it’s large scale adjustment.

Albertina Passage in Vienna, Austria by Sohne &ampPartner Architekten

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Article source: Sohne & Partner Architekten

The main challenge at Albertina Passage was to recreate an abandoned pedestrian underpass at the very center of Vienna into a modern dinner club for up to 300 persons. Our target was to design a club that is suitable for an elegant dinner as well as for a big party night. Hence, the design includes live music, a restaurant and a lounge. Our idea was to include these functions in one concept.
