Interior design of the traditional restaurant Pfarrwirt in Döbling/Vienna.
The focus was on the preservation of the unique ensemble characterized by the relationship between a traditional tavern and an elegant cottage house. The design concept is based on various historical layers to create different atmospheres: from the typical tavern cupboard to the traditional „Stube“ room in the wooden veranda, from the „Beethoven room“ with gothic stone fragments to the elegant „Prälatensaal“ (Prelate’s Hall) with a historical stucco ceiling decorated with hanging grapes. BWM’s approach aiming to an evolution of site-specific characters by means of circumspect interventions and adaptations is emphasized by pieces of modern art.
