Miami, FL, July 22, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- The Levante Parliament is now a member of the Epoque Hotels Collection fitting perfectly, with its cutting-edge design approach, in the Avantgarde Line.
The hotel is situated in a central location, behind the Parliament and the Viennese City Hall and offers 70 rooms and suites. The house, built in 1908 in the classical modernist “Bauhaus” style, is today protected by a preservation order. The most distinctive features of the imposing architecture are the lineal forms on which a century later the design of today’s hotel has been based.
All furnishings and fittings used remain true to this innovative architecture. The use of the elements of life – fire (light and transparency), earth (natural materials), air (all rooms have a height of 3.30m) and water (movement and fluidity) are combined with all the modern comforts of a first class hotel. The “element” glass is used in large glass walls dividing the bathroom and living area, the bathroom doors and the shower. Indirect lighting throughout the hotel creates not only a spectacular effect but a warm and friendly atmosphere.
The Levante Parliament functions as a gallery and offers their guests an exclusive exhibition of glass works by the international artist Ioan Nemtoi, as well as a collection of unusual and breathtaking photographs of the ballet dancers of the Vienna State Opera. The Glass Designer Ioan Nemtoi was also the inspiration for the Hotel’s Restaurant “Nemtoi”. He designed the four fire frames and the unique glass bar. They are the eye-catcher and the optical center of the restaurant.
A wonderful garden of 400 m2 in the inner court creates not only light in all the rooms but also offers guests an area to relax – cosy lounges and Mediterranean garden atmosphere. The hotel also offers for sportive guest a fully equipped fitness room.
