International Hotel Awards | Best Hotel & Five Star Interior. More
Archer Humphryes designed the opulent interior of Sans Souci, a 63-room luxury hotel created within a 19th century building in Vienna’s Museum Quarter.
The project draws on the city’s glorious decorative and artistic heritage to create a rich but relaxing environment throughout both public areas and three floors of residences at the top of the building. Archer Humphryes designed the lobby, bar, restaurant, private dining room, spa, and eight residences, which include a sixth floor penthouse with panoramic views across the city.
Guests enter through a 20-metre-long gallery lined with classical muses and marble mosaic flooring. This leads to a circular lobby inspired by the Pantheon in Rome, top lit and laid out on a brightly patterned marble floor. The bar is lined in gilded panelling and includes a combination of contemporary bespoke and antique furniture. The restaurant is quieter in tone, designed to display the owner’s collection of classic 20th century modern art.
