Award 2019

Altstadt Vienna Design Prize 2019

A haven of concentrated creativity itself, the Hotel Altstadt Vienna endows its € 2.000,- design prize for outstanding achievements in the field of young design in 2019 for the first time.


17 projects have been submitted in collaboration with the New Design University's Masters program Interior Design & Visual Communication. The subject of this year's competition was the creation of a barrier-free hotel room with special consideration of the universal design concept.


The aim was to take into account the narration and the focus on conveying the Viennese attitude to life propagated by the Altstadt Vienna. Together with professors Christian Prasser, Christine Schweiger and Christof Nardin, 2 projects were nominated. The winning project will be announced by a jury on October 1st, 2019 as part of the Vienna Design Week and will be built into the hotel in 2020.


All 17 submitted projects will be on display in the festival headquarters of the Vienna Design Week from September 27th 2019 to October 6th 2019.
