BWM Architekten has designed Hotel Gilbert in Wien, Austria.
This project, with its Scandinavian flair and abundant greenery, is a fully refurbished hotel attracts locals as well as international guests. By skilfully blending the various interior areas, a very familiar atmosphere was created that befits a family-run hotel.
The atrium is the heart of Hotel Gilbert. Various elements and types of parquet flooring divide it into different zones, without obstructing the view until the far end. An indoor garden with a blue-tiled floor stretches across the width of the atrium and serves as something of a filter, and a drinking-water fountain enhances the fresh garden ambience.
Behind it is a fireplace that adds an element of cosiness while reinforcing – in conjunction with the fountain, the abundant greenery and the daylight entering the space through the glass roof – the overall theme of an enchanting floral wonderland.
