Refurbishment of Villa Rosau

In the course of the project for the new office building, Villa Rosau has been fundamentally refurbished. The historical villa was constructed by the architect Ferdinand Stadler in 1844/45. Research in the archives and surveys on site yielded information on the villa’s historical condition and urban setting that provided the basis for the façade renovation and the basic fit-out. The building will continue to be used as the domicile of the ‘Club Baur au Lac’ and comprises bar and restaurant spaces on the ground floor, clubrooms on the second floor, and meeting rooms on the top floor.
