Wet and Wild

Sorry Google, you can keep your headquarters full of Segway riding junior geniuses and the free beer fridges, when We Heart opens its new base of operations we’re going to be commissioning the team behind Pratersauna in Vienna, a place that grabs us so strongly we could file charges for assault.

It’s actually a club, not an office building, and was once a sauna in the city being unnecessarily dubbed the new Berlin. The original 1960s features still dominate this techno-electronica venue – although there are definitely areas which have undergone cutting-edge renovations here, the spirit of the sauna still seeps through the bones of the place. Among the spaces to have been given an update are the unisex lavatories designed by All Austrian Arts, featuring 10 mind-bendingly decorated stalls and the brilliantly authoritative instruction “Respect The Toilet”. You have been told. It’s probably a place best enjoyed in summer, with its swimming pool and outdoor garden, so don’t say we haven’t given you plenty of notice.
