A new take on a traditional restaurant.

BWM Architekten redesigned the iconic Figlmüller Restaurant in Vienna’s Bäckerstrasse as well as extending it to incorporate the entire ground floor of the neighbouring building. They combined typical Viennese materials with modern elements to create a fresh, yet cosy atmosphere where guests can enjoy their schnitzel, boiled beef and other classic Viennese dishes.

This client is a true Viennese institution: the iconic Figlmüller restaurant in Bäckerstrasse in Vienna’s 1st district. BWM Architekten redesigned the restaurant and extended it to include the entire ground floor of the neighbouring building so that it can now offer seating for 250 guests. Figlmüller is the first point of call for both tourists and locals when it comes to original Viennese cuisine that is at once steeped in tradition and keeps with the times. And just as cuisines continue to develop while remaining rooted in their history, so does the restaurant’s appearance now reflect this interplay between tradition and innovation, the old and the new.
Tradition meets modernity.

“Our goal was to preserve the quintessence of Figlmüller’s more than 100-year-old concept, but also embed it in a modern setting,” explains BWM architect Erich Bernard. “We wanted to keep the authentic Viennese atmosphere and satisfy guests’ expectations, while at the same time creating something new and contemporary. After all, every long-standing restaurant is a patchwork of sorts. But here we’ve elevated the patchwork to a concept.”
