HOT DEALS AND NEW HOTELS
In this eclectically and strikingly designed glass and metal structure, open communication between the universe within and the environment without is the name of the game – literally. Architect Günter Domenig's AugartenHotel Art & Design makes a unique statement for modernity in Graz – an Austrian city dominated by Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture. To Domenig, good architecture is all about capacity, economy and stature. At the same time, Domenig is the "architect of the game," meaning that AugartenHotel invites its guests to play. In the guestrooms and apartments, straightforward streamlined furnishings and interiors by various designers provide striking accents throughout. The hotel also boasts a collection of over 400 original artworks by modern and contemporary masters, which adorn the rooms and public spaces. This fusion of design and art creates spaces that are conducive to work, contemplation and play. In fact, no space is overlooked as a creative and potentially inspiring venue: take, for example, the 24-hour bar and indoor pool. Vibrant works by 200 different contemporary painters and sculptors are displayed in surprising places, such as the courtyard, stairwells, rooftop terrace – which offers magnificent views of the old city below – and Suite 601 overlooking the clock tower, equipped with fine art and design pieces.
