Hotel Atlantis by Giardino, Zurich

The Hotel Atlantis boasts a big story and was built in the 1960‘s as a new hotel with a modern construction design in an exceptional location at the foot of the Uetliberg (Uetli mountain). Its prominence in Zurich made it a place to be in the 1970‘s. Following several changes in ownership and of use, the Atlantis saw a dejected period of existence. In 2012 Monoplan was commissioned with the general planning mandate to carry out the reconstruction of the Atlantis Hotel. The goal was to revive the new Hotel Atlantis as a
5 Star premium category establishment.

All measures have been approved by the Zurich monument conservation office so as to consider the responsibility towards its tradition-rich history.
Accordingly, all rooms, the facade and the complete technical building service were to be renovated. A highlight is the new facade where, through a reverse printing technique, it took on the characteristic of the old aggregate concrete facade. The redesign of the interiors was undertaken by The Gallery HBA London.
