Redesign of the Salon Sacher

The Salon Sacher in the famous Hotel Sacher now boasts a glorious new look: Following their redesign of the Sacher Eck  2017, the Vienna-based BWM Architekten also redesigned the salon, which has both a café and a bar area. The black and coral colour scheme and the 1920s and 1950s elements congenially complement one other. Arched globe lights highlight the bar’s role as a centrepiece, and tinted mirrors and metallic effects perfectly round off the overall look. The historical stucco ceiling, which is preserved and displayed by means of a generous opening, is an absolute eyecatcher. To the project.
