In the province of Bolzano, Rubner Haus has expanded and raised Hotel Dolomiten, immersed in the mountain setting of the Three Peaks of Lavaredo

At Dobbiaco, Rubner Haus has completed the expansion, raising and facade of the Hotel Dolomiten in just two and a half months, in a project by the architecture firm Architekturkollektiv NULL17.

“The idea was to create continuity with the surrounding landscape,” says the architect Michael Baumgartner, “making a structure that would fit into it thanks to its dynamic form and contemporary design, as well as the material, namely wood. The facade is also in wood – in this case thermo-treated pine – a material that is very durable and can stand up to any climate change.”

Wooden constructions made with a framework system, as in this project, have a special wall with a structure that ensures high levels of thermal insulation. The construction technique is ecological and sustainable, with isolated parts and great stability, ensuring high values of thermal insulation in both winter and summer. The structure of the facility is robust and breathes, making a contribution to environmental protection by absorbing large amounts of CO².

The hotel also features a wellness space, including a Finnish sauna, a Turkish bath, hydromassage units, an emotional shower, solarium, infrared cabin and relaxation zone with water cots and a tea corner.
