Hotel Altstadt Vienna


Itself a stronghold of concentrated creative energy, in 2019 Hotel Altstadt Vienna will sponsor a design prize worth 2,000 euros for the first time: As part of a competition held in cooperation with the master’s program Interior Design & Visual Communication at the New Design University (NDU) St. Pölten, 17 projects were submitted, and all of them deal with the creation of an accessible hotel room in accordance with the universal design concept. The intention was to consider the focus on conveying Viennese lifestyle promoted by Alt­stadt Vienna. The winning project will be cho­sen by a jury and realized at the hotel in 2020. Festival visitors are invited to visit both the comprehensive exhibition at the Festival Head­quarters showcasing the best submissions as well as the hotel room to be transformed.
