Rosewood Vienna

– a luxury hotel wears bronze

In the heart of Vienna, the 2.600 m2 large attic conversion on the former main building of the Erste Group Bank AG makes passers-by curiously gaze upward for a reason: The historic, large-scale building complex is being extensively renovated and is receiving an elegant and durable Prefalz roof in bronze that proudly presents itself as part of a tasteful renewal that carefully adheres to monument protection. With its matt appearance, it fits in seamlessly with its immediate surroundings.

A hotel of the Hong Kong-based luxury hotel chain „Rosewood“ will be moving into the building, which initiated the ongoing renovation work. The noble colour of the roof fits, as does the structural implementation: ARGE Baumeister Böhm + Granit, Graf Holztechnik and the tinsmith company Dachkönig OG are responsible for the high-quality completion of the renovation, which was commissioned by the Erste Group Bank AG. “This renovation is without a doubt highly complex,” as Bernhard Rapf of A2K ARCHITEKTEN confirms. After all, it is necessary to convert part of the building complex for new usage and the renovation work has to be realised in close cooperation with the Austrian Federal Monuments Office.

The Rosewood Hotel is moving in, but there are also a lot of things that are staying just the way they are. Stay tuned and find out more about what else happened during the renovation of the building complex and what it looks like after it is completed in a separate, extensive article about the project!
