Experience design & gourmet

Vienna has a long tradition of bars and restaurants with unusual interior designs. The Loos Bar is a classic example. A century ago Viennese architect and modernist pioneer Adolf Loos created a timeless atmosphere with his compact American Bar.

The British star designer Sir Terence Conran is responsible for the interior design of the Brasserie & Bakery in The Guesthouse Vienna, where he has emphasized the décor to be found in traditional Austrian establishments of the early part of the 20th century. The restaurant’s armchairs were made according to designs by the famous post-war architect Oswald Haerdtl. All of the brass items, including the coat stands, come from the Carl Auböck Workshop in Vienna.

Given its location at the Architekturzentrum Wien in the MuseumsQuartier, quality architecture is must for Café Restaurant Corbaci. French architects Anne Lacaton and Jean Philippe Vassal have based their philosophy around the intelligent treatment of a minimalist approach to using materials, and this is plain to see at Corbaci. The mosaic ceiling work from Turkish artist Asiye Kolbai-Kafalier provides a suitable contrast to the minimalist architecture elsewhere.

A little bit of Italian bar culture has moved into Vienna in the shape of Bar Campari in the Goldenes Quartier. The architecture studio of the Italian Matteo Thun designed the interior. The futurist graphics designed by the artist Fortunato Deparo for Campari starting in the 1920s served as an inspiration and are reflected in the design and colors: red, black and white convey the flair of an Italian café bar and invite you in for an enjoyable aperitif.

The Viennese architecture office BEHF has already made its mark on a large number of restaurants in the city. At the refined Japanese restaurant Shiki, the architects from BEHF have included many individual details – from the hand-made and hand-painted Japanese paper ceiling in the brasserie to the wall painted with piano lacquer in the fine dining room.

Restaurant Steirereck is not only one of the best restaurants in the world but also plays every visual trick there is. The team of architects from PPAG opened up the restaurant towards the Stadtpark. The park is reflected in the metal external façades, the windows can be opened outward and upward in fine weather. That creates a feeling of modern airiness inside, as do the floor made from Danube pebbles and the light oak paneling.

The stylish interior of the Asian restaurant Market near Naschmarkt is by Birgit Eschenlor. A central eye-catcher is the giant flower lamp by the artist Robert Thierry. The architect masterfully places colored accents using textile artworks.
