The collaboration between Austrian architects BWM Architekten und Partner and interior designer Michael Manzenreiter resulted in erecting a fascinating hotel in central Vienna. The new Hotel Topazz rises 10 stories in the air on one of the city’s smallest building sites and its dark mosaic facade pierced by rounded windows cannot be ignored. Each of the elliptical windows corresponding to a hotel room/bath are lined with cushions to offer guests the possibility of enjoying surrounding views from the window seat. Roundly – cornered and topped off with a selection of the finest textures both on the outside and on the inside, the new design hotel boasts unconventional lines and comfortable, luxurious rooms that make up for the very small building lot, only 153 square meters. Sustainable materials are part of the hotel’s energy-saving concept, as well as linen and locally- sourced food and drinks. Described as “reminiscent of a sculptural creation by Koloman Moser – a sparkling cylinder, studded with large, oval precious stones“, Hotel Topazz is defined by its elegance and Viennese charm showcased in the heart of Vienna.
