Project Location Vienna
Entry Descriptionsoft refurbishment with light staging
The design hotel Le Méridien Vienna, located on one of the most famous boulevards in the world, the great Wiener Ringstrasse, has undergone a complete refurbishment of the entire ground floor. Through an innovative architectural concept, BEHF Architects has converted the ensemble of three landmark buildings into an inviting, extravagant place.
A great challenge for the architects has been to develop a new spatial structure and create a sleek and novel look for the reception area, which would provide better orientation and a cosmopolitan ambience. The design concept gives the hotel a new presence in the vibrant Vienna of today, while simultaneously creating a stronger connection to its historical background.
In this project lighting and architecture are inextricably linked. Le Méridien is a perfect example for the power of light in Architecture. Light that affects the interior space and atmosphere and brings emotional value to the function.
