This former imperial city and administrative seat of the Austro-Hungarian Empire under the reign of the Habsburgs was also the birthplace of the arts in Europe during the 18th and 19th centuries. As the present day capital of modern Austria, Vienna continues to enthral visitors from all over the world. As a major historical and cultural site, the city has maintained numerous vestiges of its past glory, when Austria dominated the entire European continent, including the Schönbrun Palace and the National Library, baroque masterpieces by the renowned architect, Johann Bernhard-Fischer von Erlach. Imperial Vienna however, is only one facet of the city. The modern, the creative and the trendy have also been played a vital role in this vibrant city since the end of the 1990s with innovative and contemporary architectural projects. From the celebrated museum quarter to the new business center, well-known international artists have shaped their work to the image of the city. Unused former gas depots have been converted into residential and commercial areas. Gasometer City exemplifies the winds of artistic change blowing over modern day Vienna. This lesser known trendy and unusual side of the city is nevertheless more than worth the visit.
Gasometer City, site of the former gas depots that supplied the municipality of Vienna for 85 years, now contains a stream of offices, apartments and shops all in perfect harmony with the Austrian capital’s post-modern atmosphere of exciting contrasts. It’s therefore not surprising that the Hotel Roomz-Vienna was built in this neighborhood. The sober, almost sad appearance of its gray and white façade hides a very different type of interior, a masterpiece of contemporary design. Strong green and fuchsia colors, wall frescoes and lamps of all kinds are the work of the Austrian architectural firm, Archisphere, which created this trendy and avant-garde design hotel accessible to even the slimmest of budgets. Inspired by the work of the celebrated architect, Josef Hoffmann, a representative of modernist Austrian art, Gabriel Kacerocsky juggled with art nouveau and art deco styles. The hotel’s 152 rooms are in four distinct colors. At night, the lobby becomes a cozy bar-lounge where one can enjoy a cocktail before heading for the hotel’s restaurant.
During the years that followed the abandoning of the gas depots, the site was used as a movie set. Scenes from the James bond film, “The Living Daylights” were shot here.
