The design of the new Tourist Info follows the architectural approach of spatial experience, as well as the interaction between architecture and its perception. The optimum connection between functional and aesthetic qualities is the focal point of the design, ensuring smooth work flow as well as a fascinating high-quality space.
A faceted space shaping brass wall is in the heart of the concept, representing Vienna’s diversity through its multifunctional quality, materiality and appearance.
The choice of materials, furniture and a balanced colour scheme create a distinctive atmosphere and strengthen the presence of this modular information medium. The space is divided into two functional areas, hanging lights serve at the same time as a signage system, a lounge area and other seating furniture offer a possibility to linger. The new Tourist Info gives Vienna’s visitors a first strong idea of the historically charged and unique city.
