Architect Visit: Bernardo Bader in Austria

September 16, 2011

Spotted on Architizer: Metzgerstüble, a bar and restaurant in the village of Mellau, Austria, designed by local architect Bernardo Bader. He describes the project as “an attempt to develop a contemporary building for guests away from alpine clichés that welcomes both tourists and the residents of Mellau.” The long, narrow rectangular structure allows the beauty of the wood exterior and interiors to shine forth and stands in marked contrast to the town’s traditional alpine architecture. To see more of the architect’s work, go to Architekt DI Bernardo Bader.
