SCHNITZL LOVE in Salzburg, with us as general contractor.
First Vienna, now a second truly fine address for a new Meissl & Schadn
No less than 4 floors had to be worked on at the Meissl & Schadn in 50, Getreidegasse, among which the administrative premises as well as the elegant open kitchen and a restaurant with some 190 seats. A design to mirror Viennese restaurants and cafés of the late 19th and early 20th centuries was chosen for the complete make-over of former Carpe Diem restaurant. KAMPER was awarded the general contractor’s works for this project and completed these in 5 months only. The restaurant area of Meissl & Schadn spreads on two floors, which are elegantly connected with an open staircase and adjoining gallery, generously reviving an early 20th century flair. The splendour in the entrance area and gallery are evoked by a Maria Theresia chandelier, handmade by former purveyor of the court Lobmeyr, Vienna, and a huge Art Nouveau crystal mirror with gilt frame. Just what it takes to meet the high quality the restaurant offers its guests. A delicate composition of exquisite materials revives the glorious turn of the century design and pairs elegantly with the historic building: polished brass in wall applications, edge protections, plinths, table frames, extraction hoods, and decorative lights, fishbone floors and boarded oak parquet as well as exquisite cement tile ornaments in the reception and open kitchen areas, classic stucco elements on walls and ceilings, high gloss varnished wall claddings, dividing walls and cabinet maker works made of pear wood.
Project managers Werner Brottrager and Peter Sunko agree: “Sophisticated expectations challenged us to deliver the extraordinary.” We at KAMPER are grateful that the Florian Weitzer Hotels & Restaurants have once more entrusted us such a stylish and elegant project.
