Hotel Altstadt Vienna

The rooms and suites of the Hotel Altstadt Vienna, built in 1902, are diverse and unique. Because of this diversity and the extensive collection of contemporary art, the hotel in the vibrant 7th district is generally regarded as a haven of creativity. In keeping with this spirit, two rooms by Archisphere were added to the hotel in 2014.

Whether designed by international architects such as Matteo Thun or contemporary fashion stars such as Lena Hoschek - no two living spaces at Hotel Altstadt Vienna are alike. But they all have one thing in common: the much-vaunted Viennese cosiness.

In this sense, the aim of Archisphere's design was also to add a hotel room to the colourful spectrum that is actually not a hotel room at all - rather, it is meant to be a workshop of ideas, a place of inspiration and a gallery of possibilities. At the centre of the thought-provoking room is a sumptuous bed that, together with the accentuating accessories and pieces of furniture, creates a charming structure.

Curtains, furniture - table, bed and washstand - as well as the grey-black-yellow carpet were specially designed by Archisphere. Embedded in a multi-faceted whole, the latter picks up the colours of the interior. The mirror hanging from the wall, meanwhile, is inspired by a truck mirror. In front of the window, La Chaise by Eames invites you to relax.

Opposite the bed, the washstand designed especially for this room extends freely in the room like a workbench. The noble materials marble, solid wood and leather create a lively contrast to the archaic form of the studio workbench. Illuminating accents are provided by iconic lights by Achille Castiglione and wall lights by Paolo Rizzatto that function as reading lights. Complemented by contemporary artworks from the extensive collection of the owner Otto Ernst Wiesenthal, the image of the studio blends into a free space that offers more than mere fulfilment of expectations.
