THE HISTORY OF OUR DESIGN- A CONNECTION OF TRADITION AND MODERNITY
The Ritz-Carlton, Vienna has a very special character and is built in the architectural style called historicism, which is embracing older styles such as the Renaissance or Romanticism, while already implementing the simultaneous development of the art nouveau. From the outside you can see the historical building, which is combined with a contemporary, luxurious interior reflecting its surrounding. The influence of the Ring Boulevard on the design can easily be seen by the round, wooden elements such as the chandeliers in the Lobby reflecting the shape of the Ring Boulevard and the many trees lining the boulevard respectively. The horse paintings reflect the Viennese Horse Culture as the world- famous Spanish Riding School and the beloved horse carriages, named “Fiaker” by the Viennese.
