Ho­tel Sof­i­tel Vi­enna Stephans­dom, Aus­tria

Mas­ter­piece of con­tem­po­rary ar­chi­tec­ture

World Travel Magazine - - Architecture & Design Marvels Where To Stay -

Ate­lier Jean Nou­vel beat out three other Pritzker win­ners in a site-spe­cific com­pe­ti­tion and Ho­tel Sof­i­tel Vi­enna Stephans­dom won, tak­ing her place in the his­toric heart of Vi­enna. Want­ing to en­rich Vi­enna with a work of art, Nou­vel leaves guests with a sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ence un­like any other. So­phis­ti­cated and stream­lined, the ho­tel in­vites you to make your home-away-from-home in an en­vi­ron­ment filled with jux­ta­po­si­tion and sen­si­bil­i­ties that in­spire your sense of cu­rios­ity. An at­mos­phere of end­less con­ver­sa­tion pieces, it is likely that you will leave not only re­laxed and re­stored but de­cid­edly more sa­ti­ated as well. Sub­tle plays of colour, ma­te­ri­als and tex­tures abound in this mar­vel where min­i­mal form meets max­i­mum func­tion in a beau­ti­ful ex­am­ple of sus­tain­able de­sign. 182 el­e­gant rooms and suites let you con­ve­niently ex­plore the old town, Vi­enna Woods, and the fa­mous Fer­ris wheel. Peel back the lay­ers on con­cepts of the pos­si­ble and im­pos­si­ble over in­ter­na­tional cui­sine at the Das LOFT restau­rant with stun­ning, wall-to-wall views of Aus­tria’s City of Mu­sic. Or just linger in the 180-square-me­ter Mag­nifique Suite en­ter­tain­ing guests at a ta­ble for 12, then pam­per­ing in the spa bath­room com­plete with whirlpool and Ham­mam. sof­i­tel-vi­enna-stephans­dom.com
