This wonderful historical building, located on crossroads of two of the most busiest and famous Viennese streets – the “Mariahilfer Straße” and “Mariahilfer Gürtel”, has been repeatedly neglected over the past fifty years. Even worse, the changes which were made weren’t respectful of it’s original character and style.
Therefore when we were given the task of converting it into a Hotel we decided to bring it back all its former “glory”. First of all by freeing it of all the new elements which were put on it over the years. The ground floor facade is a contemporary interpretation of the historical facade which used to be there. The roof folds gently over the building while still respecting the symmetry and proportions of the building.
The material palette is subdued and carefully chosen to enhance the character of the existing facade.
