Interior Design: BEHF
When restoring old buildings, the LENIKUS Group places the utmost importance on blending cultural traditions and modern trends – maintaining their historic value, while creating new, landscape architecture with the resources available today. Such was the case with Hotel Lamée: originally constructed in the 1930s, the building was renovated with a focus on sustainability and environmental impact in mind. Hotel Lamée, and its sister property, Hotel Topazz, across the street, both use advanced technology to save energy and generate low operating cost resources. But the sustainable approach does not end there. Throughout the hotel, high-quality green materials have been used for building and interior design, including the furniture, linen and locally-sourced food and drinks.
The 32 rooms and suites, set over eight stories, include five top floor suites with private terraces which can also be used for photo shoots or small events. The slim, cubic form of the building belies the opulent interiors, designed by award-winning architecture firm BEHF from Vienna.
The guiding theme for the hotel’s interior is the glamour of Hollywood during the 1930s. The geometric design of the façade carries on into the hotel’s entrance, where light splashes against the warm brown marble of the floors, walls and ceilings.
In the guestrooms, a well thought out lighting concept and high-gloss wooden veneers create a comfortable and elegant atmosphere. Art deco-inspired light fixtures with oversized tassels; cognac leather dressers; crisscrossed brass dividers; and circular back-lit mirrors dominating the walls, all create the feeling that the plush room belongs to an alluring starlet. A perfect lighting, aroma and music concept round out the experience, stimulating all the senses and whisking guests away to another time and place.
But at Bloom, the hotel’s two-storey bar, bistro and café, guests and locals will feel firmly placed in the Vienna of here and now. Located on one of the neighborhood’s most frequented corners, its glass front doors open onto the street, uniting customers with the lively surroundings. Vivid wall and ceiling patterns made of backlit wooden veneer and tinted, mirrored glass lend the space depth and a cozy atmosphere. Bloom sticks to the hotel’s ethos of sustainability, using local, organic producers whenever possible for its reinterpretation of Austrian delicacies. On the top floor, guests have access to a private rooftop garden with views of Vienna’s old town and the spires of St. Stephen’s cathedral. This breezy space can also be hired exclusively for events by our hotel guests.
