Future project 2016
The Dolder Waldhaus is well-established. The restaurant and spa area have been centres of attraction for Zurich’s Hottingen district for decades. It is a popular venue, which is frequently visited by the local people.
Nevertheless, the present building does not meet current operational or energy requirements. The services and technical equipment are well maintained, but mostly date back to the origin of the building. There is, therefore, a need for renewal. Dolder Hotel AG is planning to replace the present building, which dates from 1975, with a new-build project. To this end, an architectural competition was held in 2011 and subsequently won by the firm Meili & Peter Architekten of Zurich. Taking into account the necessary proceedings, planning phase and building permit, construction work will commence in 2016 at the earliest. Until then, the Dolder Waldhaus will continue to operate unaltered.
