WIENER GÄSTE ZIMMER

URLAUBSARCHITEKTUR | HOLIDAYARCHITECTURE as Association

In the Gegenbauer WIENER ESSIG BRAUEREI (viennese vinegar brewery) five small apartments have been converted into a set of unique guest rooms. Founded in 1929, the old industrial charm of the factory pervades each space. Exposed brick walls, wooden ceilings and bare wooden planks give the bedrooms a raw, cavernous feel. And technical features are not hidden from view but presented openly: cables hang from the ceilings, water pipes run through the rooms. The focal point of each bedroom is the WIENER GUEST BED. Using stacked timbers of Siberian larch wood, architects have designed a construction which combines the functions of a bed, shelf and desk. The beds may look spartan but offer amenities like organic bed linen and quality mattresses. Meanwhile, the open bathroom blends comfort and asceticism: the toilet seats are heated, but the washbasins have no drain and must be emptied manually.


Facilities include a share-use kitchen, a sauna and pool area, and a terrace garden in the courtyard. At breakfast you can enjoy the Gegenbauer’s own produce, including coffee, honey and bread.
