Bar Hotel Restaurant

Unfortunately out of print

Dear Readers,

Have I already mentioned that the AIT issue on gastronomy published every June is our favourite magazine? There is such an incredible number of imaginative, exciting and courageous concepts for restaurants, cafés, bars and hotels that it is always really difficult for us to draw up a shortlist. Nonetheless, we managed to do so once again and show you almost 40! catering businesses that could not be more different. We omitted anything mainstream and selected projects, which ooze imaginativeness and exceptional concepts: you will find everything from luxury holiday destination to peculiar cafés and trendy restaurants through to well-designed (they actually exist!) university canteens and hostels. We even present a hotel on fire, from which our columnist Benjamin Reding thankfully managed to escape! You find his exciting essay “Free Hugs” on page 70. It is an open secret that (interior) architects have a special relationship to the subject of catering, which means that they not only like to work on such projects or spend many hours in the completed ones, but occasionally one might even become a restaurateur. So it is easily comprehensible that an architect turns to the topic of wine. Although Marc Nagel from Stuttgart studied architecture, he could not be discouraged from cultivating his own vineyard and assumed the management of the vintners’ cooperative, Bad Cannstatter Weingärtner. In our heading “Change of Perspective” starting on page 54, he explains how this came about. If architects are asked what they always wanted to design, the answer often is: a hotel. Maybe you are in the fortunate position – then our report on the Milan Furniture Fair (page 24) can give you current suggestions for interior furnishings, whilst our product focus on outdoor furniture (page 74) provides latest information about furnishing products for outdoor areas. If you think we have had the opportunity to visit all the fantastic projects in Toronto, Shanghai, Mexico or Vietnam – far from it! At least we made it to Andermatt, Ostfildern-Nellingen and Stuttgart: The picture alongside was taken late at night in the Vietnamese restaurant Breitengrad 7 (page 38) in Stuttgart’s Schwabenzentrum. Our colleague Annette Weckesser travelled a little further: at the Expo in Milan she (also) took a closer look at the German Pavilion!
