Welcome to Caffè Sacher Triest
Located in the lively pedestrian zone just a stone’s throw from the Corso Italia right in the centre of Trieste, the new Caffè Sacher Trieste opened its doors today! BWM architect Erich Bernard, proprietor Dizzi Alfons and interior stylist Peter Weisz (l to r) brought the famous Sachertorte to Trieste and saved the heritage building, where they put a lot of thought and care into integrating the new elements into the restored original furnishings from 1912.

BWM for EXPO Osaka!
The Austrian Pavilion for EXPO 2025 Osaka was officially presented. BWM Designers & Architects in collaboration with facts and fiction won the two-stage realization competition for the design of the Austrian Pavilion. The Expo's motto - "Designing future societies for our lives" – is interpreted accordingly in musical terms: In Austria, the future is not 'designed', here it is composed – "Austria. Composing the Future". In the picture left to right: Johann Moser (BWM Designers & Architects), S.E. Ryuta Mizuuchi (Japanese ambassador in Vienna), Harald Mahrer (President of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber), Ursula Plassnik (Government Commissioner for Expo 2025 Osaka), Martin Kocher (Federal Minister of Labor and Economic)
Für uns ist es wichtig, mit den Spuren zu arbeiten und Schichten der Vergangenheit und nicht gegen sie. Denn von ihnen geht der Charme aus und der besondere Reiz, der alte Gebäude auch so anziehend macht und ihnen einen besonderen Wert verleiht.Erich Bernard
