Boris Podrecca & 33 contemporary artists
In 1993, the complete renovation of Hotel Greif was assigned to the Viennese architect Boris Podrecca. The task was to redesign Hotel Greif’s interiors and rooms while respecting its old foundation walls. Starting from the main entrance where a transparent steel and glass construction is framed by the antique wood of the original portal, traditional and modern elements blend harmoniously all over the “new” Hotel Greif.
Each room has been furnished with loving attention to detail and features soft hand-woven Iranian Gabbeh carpets, oiled and waxed dark brown Wengé wood flooring, modern furnishing made from local maple or burr walnut, and original furniture from the old hotel that has been lovingly restored. The best Italian weaving mills supplied custom-made fabrics and silk curtains in the complementary colors, while the individual bathrooms in seven different types of marble vary in size, design and furnishings.
