BEHF Architects has been awarded the BIG SEE INTERIOR DESIGN AWARD 2019 in the category Hospitality for the design of the PORTO Bar at Vienna’s Das Triest hotel.
Vienna’s boutique design hotel DAS TRIEST, a popular accommodation choice among international artists and celebrities, has expended its offerings with the acquisition of the neighbouring property, which has now been renovated. BEHF Architects has been commissioned for the interior design of the bar and restaurant area.
Located in the heart of Vienna’s hip Freihaus district for more than hundred years, Das Triest combines elements of the original suburban architecture with the charm of the Biedermeier. Guests coming from Rilkeplatz, enter the main room of PORTO Bar through a cubic copper-covered door. The walls of the room are clad in simple and quiet, yet high-quality continuous travertine stone, which extends up to the ceiling.
PORTO Bar is designed in such a way that it allows views into the entire space, as well as out into the bustling streetscape. A focal point of the space is a bar counter featuring a simple travertine stone base with copper finish.
BIG SEE INTERIOR DESIGN AWARDS recognise and expose excellence in interior design from South-East Europe. It brings together 19 countries and 350 million people.
The awarded projects were exhibited at the BIG SEE Exhibition, as a part of the Month of Design festival.
