Hotel Schani Salon is a project designed by Archisphere. Boutique hotels, run with a personal touch, are distinct and often luxurious, and a classic Viennese salon in the style of the early 20th century provides artists and free thinkers a space for creative exchange of ideas. In 2018 these concepts were united in the Hotel Schani Salon: Theme rooms—designed and realized by Archisphere—represent invitations to experience Jugendstil’s history in an authentic environment. From Sigmund Freud and Otto Wagner to Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt and his muse, Emilie Flöge. From the entrance that resembles a traditional coffeehouse to the voluminous art nouveau shower.
