Austria’s first Moxy hotel has opened its doors with the help of bwmretail in its role as full-service general planner. Moxy is the new, young lifestyle brand of the international hotel chain Marriott, which is planning to open over 100 more Moxy hotels around the world in the next few years. The Moxy Vienna Airport has 405 guest rooms and is the largest of the seven already realised Moxy hotels. It is located directly at Vienna International Airport in Schwechat.
The six-floor Moxy Vienna Airport is one of Vienna’s largest wood constructions. bwmretail employed a patented modular system consisting of prefabricated wood elements manufactured in Italy. Because the components are assembled on site and construction is carried out storey by storey, it was possible to complete the building in just one year.
The aluminium façade designed by bwmretail is an autonomous design element and a true eye-catcher. It is reminiscent of wickerwork and incorporates the Moxy branding in the form of the bright pink CI colour.
bwmretail was responsible for the detailed planning during the conceptual phase as well as for the handling of all official procedures and communication with the local authorities. During the construction phase, the bwmretail team was responsible for the quality management and served as the interface between the contractors and Vienna International airport.
