BAR HOTEL RESTAURANT
Fortunately we remember how joyful a visit to a restaurant is, how it works to book a hotel room! The gastronomic sector – at least the part that survived the lockdowns in the last two years – is in the starting blocks, presenting the projects interior designers and architects have been able to implement in recent months. Our selection for this AIT issue on the theme of Bar Hotel Restaurant – highly independent and crazy, consistent and straightforward, colourful and monochrome – does not reveal the efforts that were certainly necessary for the new start. Since our radius of action in terms of travel has been limited in recent months, it was fortunate that three remarkable venues were opened in Stuttgart: the EmiLu boutique hotel by blocher partners, the vegan restaurant Vhy! by Decor+More and the wacky Gian Paolo e Marco bar by Technobeton. All personally tested and approved! Since every successful restaurant now also needs a well-designed outdoor area, we are happy to present our Outdoor product focus, whereas our product suggestions from p. 68 may help you make the right interior design decisions. The hot tip for a long weekend in an architectural icon could bring you to the Schminke House by Hans Scharoun in Löbau, Saxony, and for ice cream lovers we have Three … Ice cream parlours in Frankfurt, Livorno and Melbourne! Books (from p. 80) to help you prepare for your holiday round off our (interior) architectural gastronomic choices and hopefully fuel your holiday mood. Those staying near Nuremberg on 14 July can take part in the 10th Architektur Fenster Fassade Forum during the Fensterbau Frontale trade fair with enlightening live lectures on the topic of “Robust”. And fans of garden pubs will love Benjamin Reding’s memoir “The Dwarf and the Penguin” and immediately associate a cool drink under the trees. We wish you many joyful moments in restaurants and bars!
