If a chippy can't get a job in Austria.........

Postby modernist » Fri Apr 19, 2013 3:19 pm

Just thought I'd share my 50 Euro a night hotel for which I get a 3 room suite and breakfast. Premier Inn take note. It was built new in 1990.

Typical Austrian wood everywhere and AFAICT not CNC'd apart from some of the carvings, and even then not certain. Most finish is straight from the plane. It's not my normal style but these guys know what they are doing and it makes a change from MFC boxes.

Dining room

Bar area

Interesting mould detail they can consider stolen

Image

More bar

Image

Image

These are either deliberately uneven or done by hand

Image

Terrible shot but this serpentine panel is definitely straight from the plane as is the surrounding framework - no sanding.

Image

Looks hand carved to me

Image

Brilliant art nouveau/deco'ish lighting

Image

More ceiling areas

Image

Image

Wall panelling

Image

Now for the interesting stuff

First a really nice handmade iron and brass staircase with marble treads

Image

Image

And finally the piece de resistance, a double opener, arch top, tilt and turn, with full Euro rebates. The gear appeared to have been bent around the curve - awesome. The joint at the pointy corner is a twin bridle with 3 steps on the outer rebates plus scribed glazing rebate on the inside and (very unusually) mitred top and bottom. Not one to be tackled after a night on the pedigree!

As I said not my normal fodder, apart from the stairs and window, but good to see.

very nice indeed.....................On paper that would like overkill, but the reality it works rather quite well.

They did they not think you were a bit weird taking so many pictures of the place?

I'm not bothered, anyway most people are pleased I am interested in their place. I always keep an eye out for good stuff. We are so inward looking in the UK and we need to see what others do.

As an example here are a few snaps from Innsbruck today

I still can't find the gear to do this with the right setback

Image

Just look at that for a door handle!!

There is so much to see and it's good stuff.

Wow...some nice stuff there, Brian. The door handle is my favourite.

Very interesting Brian. Are the semicircular windows triple glazed with the leaded light sandwiched between the outer panes?
