It took two years’ worth of work for architect Michael Atzenhofer and designer Johanna Vanicek to complete their renovation of Hotel Döllerer. Christened in 1909, Salzburg, the former butcher shop now houses a restaurant, banquet hall, spa, twelve fresh guestrooms, and our personal favorite edition – a glimmering linear showcase of Niche Modern lights above the bar!
Peaking in from the vertical garden on the terrace, the jewel tones of our handblown glass Oculo, Bell Jar, and Solitaire pendants grab the eye and carry it over the area’s hammered metal, concrete and wood, adding elegance to industrial allure.
As you may notice from the image, our standard 120v light bulbs have been replaced for 240v-friendly bulbs sourced locally to comply with European standards. While we press on conscientiously in our quest to have all fixtures readily available with 240v bulbs, it’s heartening to know our clients are inspired enough by our designs to work around current limitations. It pays having friends with architectural benefits.
So if the Döllerer’s your next destination, check your bags, hit the spa, order some Zweigelt and Bregenzerwald and find your Niche below the brilliance of modern lighting in centuries-worth of historic space. Prost!
