Conran and Partners-designed Das Triest hotel completes renovation in Vienna

by Andrew Manns | 08 Feb 2019

The Das Triest Hotel – originally designed by English architects Conran and Partners – has reopened following a multicomponent renovation.

Situated in Vienna's Freihaus district, the hotel now features refreshed exteriors, 49 additional rooms and suites, and a 240 sq m restaurant.

HD Architecken led the redesign of the building's facade, while Wehdorn Architecken was responsible for conceptualising the guest rooms – most of which provide views of the St Stephen's Cathedral.

Porto, Das Triest's on-site restaurant and bar, was planned by BEHF Architekten, who drew artistic influence both from Italian taverns and from the old harbour of Trieste.

Speaking on Porto's aesthetic, Design Hotels, the hospitality company managing Das Triest – said:

"The defining feature of the space is the imposing travertine and copper bar, the materials of which were carefully selected to produce a rich patina that will continue to develop as it is exposed to daily wear – a fitting tribute to Conran’s timeless design concept."

The first property from Design Hotels to launch in Vienna, Das Triest offers a total of 120 rooms, as well as spa, fitness studio, and solarium.

Erstwhile a coach station for post riders travelling between Triest and Vienna, the hotel was overhauled in 1995 by Sir Terence Contran and Peter Lorenz.
